    Hi Friends:

    I connected my HP Officejet Pro 8500 (A909a) to my PC and immediate I had a Device (Officejet Pro 8500 A909a) in Devices...

    ok...when I try to print any document, I don't have the Officejet Pro 8500 A909a option...I don't know what happen...it's at Devices but I don't have the option

    Another point is that I don't have the Scanner Driver for HP Officejet Pro 8500 (A909a)

    Questions:

    - Is HP Officejet Pro 8500 compatible with Windows 8 Pro 64bits?
    - Can you share your experiences with this device?
    - What do you recommend me to fix this problem?

    Thanks

    Hi Friends:

    Just for correction...

    The Officejet Pro 8500 A909a Device is for Scanner according with Control Panel/Devices and Printers...but it is not working...

    In other words, My PC don't have the HP Officejet Pro 8500 A909a Printer Driver

    Thanks

    I can't post link becouse I must insert almost 20 posts! Adding a t to http at beginning of link, you ought succeed to access the web page:)
    There isn't windows 8 in list to choose operating system! Try to run installation of driver as admin and compatible for windows 7! This operation works with logitech's drivers that not works with a normal installation procedure (double click on exe's file)!:eek: This is my bad english!

    Hi Wire1111 & 100:

    Thanks for your reply...when I tried to install OJP8500vA909_Basic_14 or OJP8500vA909_Full_14...in both cases...with Compatibility Mode Windows 7...I had a Fatal Error during installation process

    When I had Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits....OJP8500vA909_Full_14 worked great with HP Officejet Pro 8500 Printer and Scanner...but with Windows 8 Pro 64 bits....maybe...I need to wait until HP update the drivers.

    What do you think?

    Thanks

    IIRC you can unzip the setup file with 7 zip, and make all the MSI's / EXE's in the main folder run in Win7 Compatibility mode and it installs fine. There are only 3 you need to make compatible, but I can't remember which offhand. That worked a treat for me with out HP 7500 (E910).

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Antarell:

    Thanks for your reply...I changed all msi & exe files to Windows 7 Compatibility Mode for OJP8500vA909_Basic_14...and I had the same Fatal Error, when I tried to install

    Thanks anyway
