HP LaserJet 5Si and 5Si MX Printers - Microsoft (R) Windows Driver and Printing System Installation
PRINTING SYSTEM INSTALLATION
NOTE: If you are installing the HP LaserJet 5Si/5Si MX Printing System for Windows Software to a Windows 95 system, make sure you have Printing System v 2.20 (indicated on disk label). Prior versions of the Printing System are not fully compatible with Windows 95. You can obtain the newest version of the Printing System by contacting the HP Distribution Center in your region to order the disks (see your User's Manual.) In addition, the Printing System software is available as separate components on HP Electronic Services (Internet, CompuServe, America Online).
HP LaserJet 5Si/5Si MX printers shipped before January 1996 have the older version of the Printing System software. It is recommended that you upgrade your software to the 2.20 version even if you are using Windows 3.x.
The HP LaserJet 5Si/5Si MX printer Printing Software for Windows has two installation methods:
Installation Help is available through dialog boxes. Press the HELP key for access.
NOTE: The PostScript driver is only included with the HP LaserJet 5Si MX printer and does not come with the HP LaserJet 5Si printer.
MICROSOFT WINDOWS AND WINDOWS FOR WORKGROUPS V 3.1 AND 3.11 SOFTWARE INSTALLATION METHOD:
NOTE: All of the Printing Software disks may not be used if "Custom" is chosen as the installation method.
MICROSOFT WINDOWS 95 SOFTWARE INSTALLATION METHOD FOR VERSION 1.00 OF THE PRINTING SYSTEM:
INSTALLATION FOR WINDOWS 95 FOR VERSION 2.2O OF THE PRINTING SYSTEM:
WINDOWS SOFTWARE V 3.1 CONTROL PANEL INSTALLATION
As an alternative, you may install the PCL printer driver through the Windows Control Panel in Windows v 3.1 (also known as an "OEMSETUP" installation). This is not recommended because not all the software will be installed when using this method. If you have previously installed a version of the HP LaserJet 5Si Printing Software, it is highly recommended that you use the normal installation procedure to install new HP LaserJet Printing Software. This will avoid incompatibilities between older versions of the HP LaserJet Printing Systems and this one.
The PostScript driver will NOT support a Control Panel installation and must be installed using the "Setup" method in either Windows 3.1 or Windows 95.
SHARED WINDOWS PRINTING SYSTEM INSTALLATION (WINDOWS 3.1)
Before running the installation software, close all applications, close the Microsoft Office Manager, turn off any virus checkers or TSR (terminate stay resident) programs and restart Windows. (After installing the HP LaserJet Printing Software, you can turn these programs back on.)
This installation process is for users sharing a networked configuration of Windows 3.1.
SERVER INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
(Use these instructions only if you would like users to use the software after it has been copied to a server.)
PROGRAM GROUPS AND ICONS
After installing the Printing System Software, you will see the Windows program group(s) as described below:
In the \Windows directory, a file is created while the print software is installing that shows all the files that were copied, renamed, or modified. The installer also records user selections in the installer and the environment of the PC it is being installed into. The filename is HPLJ5SI.LOG.
