    Windows 8.1 & HP deskjet 6980 driver


    Moved from windows 7 to 8.1
    Now not able to install driver for the HP deskjet 6980.
    followed the wizard (add printer) and used windows update, showing the printer, but refuses to install.
    The msg: windows can not find suitable driver, despite the driver was on the windows update list, and the cmd screen flashes for two seconds, hence not able to see what is says.
    Any idea as how to install this driver?
    Thanks

    You have to use the 8 drivers from what I can see. This may also help: Windows 8 Update Failed to Install the Driver HP Deskjet 6980 Printer | HP® Support

    No it does not work, as I said in original msg:
