    Default plotter issues

    Hoping this is the right place for this?

    We have an HP 450 plotter but have recently migrated to windows 10. Since then we haven't been able to get the correct drivers for the thing, and haven't been able to plot straight from CAD or other Autodesk programs. We were able to manage via pdf for a while but that too has stopped. The plotter isn't networked and is only accessible via a dedicated desktop. Does anyone know of a workaround for this without any additional outlay if at all possible.

    Cheers in advance SD

    HP450 isn't really a lot to go on. Do you have an additional model name there? Do you have the original driver disc for more context?

    @Melanie, Its a 450C...about 20 years old.

    @superdoodle, This website has a driver, but it says that installing it can corrupt other drivers.

    lol, that was my first thought, because I actually had one of those in my first CAD office, and it was the first thing I replaced... but, there are so many newer models that start with 450, I didn't want to assume.
