V. KNOWN ISSUES
*****************

-       During installation, a 'File in use' warning may occur.  If it does,
	click 'Ignore', and the installation will continue and complete correctly.

-	If your browser is set up to connect through a proxy server and you are
	unable to access HP toolbox, add 'localhost' or '127.0.0.1' as
	an address for which to bypass the proxy server. (For Internet Explorer, 
	from the 'Tools' menu, select 'Internet Options ..'. On the Connections tab,
	click the 'LAN Settings' button  and then click the 'Advanced...' button.  
	For Netscape, from the 'Edit' menu, select Preferences', select 'Advanced', 
	and then select 'Proxies'.) 

-	On Windows operating systems, Windows Networking (TCP/IP) must be enabled
	for HP toolbox to work properly.

-	If MS PowerPoint color text prints as black text, uncheck the 'Grayscale'
	or 'Black & White' checkbox on the application's 'File\Print' dialog and
	reprint the document. (Uncheck the 'Grayscale' or 'Black & White' checkbox
	before printing each time.)

-	HP recommends 'Software First' installation of the printer software on all
	Windows operating systems. However, if you do a	'HardWare First'
	installation:

		1. to the USB port on Windows XP, it is recommended that you
		   accept the default selections that appear on the
		   'Found New Hardware' wizard dailogs to install the printer
		   correctly.
		2. to the parallel port on Windows 2000, and if a 'Hardware
		   Installation' warning dialog, which states that the software
		   you are installing for the hardware 'has not passed Windows
		   Logo testing ..' appears, click the 'Continue Anyway' button,
		   and a signed driver will be installed successfully.

- 	HP recommends 'Software First' installation of the printer software on all 
	Windows operating systems.  However, if you 
-	HP toolbox cannot access an HP LaserJet 1150/1300 printer that is shared
	(MS Networking) by a print server or directly connected to another
	computer.

- 	If, after installing the HP LaserJet 1150/1300 software (including HP
	toolbox) with the 'Directly connected to this computer' option, you wish
	to install another driver for the same printer, two options are available
	(in Windows):

		1. Use the Windows 'Add Printer' feature and select the DOT4 port,
		   (e.g. DOT4_01) on which the printer is already installed.

		2a. Insert the software CD in your CD-ROM drive
		 b. Select the 'Add or Remove' feature in the
		    'hp LaserJet 1150,1300' program group
		    OR 
		    Double-click 'Setup.exe' in the root of the software CD to start
		    the installer.
		 c. Follow the instructions. Be sure to select the HP toolbox and the
		    print driver you wish to install.
		 d. Select 'Other', and then the DOT4 port (for example, DOT4_01) on which
		    the printer is already installed.  Do not select USB or LPTx,
		    where 'x' is the LPT port number.

- 	If, after installing the HP LaserJet 1150/1300 software (including HP
	toolbox) with the 'Connected via the network' or
	'Directly connected to this computer' option, you wish to install another
	printer (to a different port) and you want to access the printer with HP
	toolbox, you must use the software installer on the CD. You must select
	HP toolbox and the print driver you wish to use in the options
	provided in the installation.
 
-	If, after installing the HP LaserJet 1150/1300 software, you upgrade your
	Windows Me/98 operating system to Windows XP Pro or you upgrade your 
	Windows 2000 operating system to Windows XP Home, the HP toolbox software 
	will not work properly.  It is recommended that you do the following:

		1. Uninstall the HP LaserJet 1150/1300 software.

		2a. Change your Win Me/98  operating system to Win XP Pro, 
		OR
		 b. Change your Win 2000 operating system to Win XP Home.

		3. Reinstall the HP LaserJet 1150/1300 software.

-	When text that is printed with the HP PCL 5e driver is not optimal, try
	one of the following, depending on your driver and operating system, and
	reprint your document:

		1. To use the HP LaserJet PCL 5e print driver:
		    A. Win 9x, Win Me, Win NT:
		       Check the 'Send TrueType as Bitmaps' box on the
		       'Finishing\Print Quality Details' page in the driver's 
		       'Printing Preferences' or 'Properties'.
		    B. Win 2000, Win XP:
		       Enable the 'Send TrueType as Bitmaps' feature on the
		       'Advanced' page of the print driver's 'Printing Preferences'
			 or 'Properties'.

		2. Use the host-based driver (HP LaserJet 1150 printer only).

-	The host-based driver (HP LaserJet 1150 printer only) does not
	support print driver vending (point 'n print).

-	When uninstalling the HP LaserJet 1150/1300 software, if you use the
	'Add or Remove' feature in the 'HP LaserJet 1150, 1300' program group,
	you will need the software CD.  However, if you use the 
	'Add/Remove Programs' feature in the Windows Control Panel group,
	you will not need the software CD.

-	If you use the Opera browser to access HP toolbox, please use the latest
	version of the browser for best results.

-	With Windows 98/Me, if the HP LaserJet 1150/1300 software installer does not
	give you an option to select the Customization Utility, run the following
	command from the software CD drive:
	':\hpsetup.exe /a', where  is the letter of the drive
	in which the CD is installed. 

-	To have full printer driver functionality when printing a document to file
	using the HP LaserJet PCL 5e, HP LaserJet PCL 6 (HP LaserJet 1300 only),
	or the HP LaserJet PS (HP LaserJet 1300 only) driver with Win XP or
	Win 2000, you must create a 'Local Port' and map the
	printer driver to that port.

-	In the Windows or Mac OS X environments, the printer symbol set can be set by
	accessing the printer's embedded web server directly or through the HP
	toolbox.  In the DOS environment, set the symbol set as follows:
		1. Find the '.pjl' file for your language in the 'DOS' folder
		   at the root of the software CD.
		2. From a DOS window, copy the file to the printer port
		   (for example, 'copy /b  LPTx', where x is your LPT port
		   number).
	Please read the 'SYMreadme.txt' file at the root of the software CD for 
	detailed instructions.

-	Windows XP 64-bit print drivers for HP LaserJet 1150/1300 printers will 
	be available only on the web.

-	HP toolbox for Mac OS X is available only on the web.  The print
	drivers for the Mac operating system are available on the software
	CD and the web.

	toolbox.  In the DOS environment, set the symbol set as follows:
		1. Find the '.pjl' file for your language in the 'DOS' folder
		   at the root of the software CD.
		2. From a DOS window, copy the file to the printer port
		   (for example, 'copy /b  LPTx', where x is your LPT port
		   number).
	Please read the 'SYMreadme.txt' file at the root of the software CD for 
	detailed instructions.
