I downloaded from HP an .exe file hp_53_enu.exe which the hp website says will install drivers for my HP Photosmart 7960 printer. The self extracting/install wizard doesn't work. I'm sure the drivers I need are in there, so I downloaded uniextract161.exe and used it to extract the files The extraction process placed 68 files and 7 folders into a new folder named hp_72-enu-net.
11 of those files are .dll files, 16 are .dat files, 14 are .cat files, 15 are .inf files, 4 are .sys files and 2 are .exe files. In one of the new sub-sub-folders named hp_72-enu-net\Drivers\winxp (my operating system), I found a file named hppaufd0.sys.
Which of those files are the drivers? Where should I put them?
I found a folder named c:\windows\program files\hp photosmart\data\ which contains one file named hphsav12
I also found a folder named c:\hp\drivers\printers\deskjet\ which contains some .pnf files. (Deskjet is a printer I no longer have, not the photosmart 7960 that I am trying to install.) Should I make a new folder named c:\hp\drivers\printers\photosmart and put the drivers in there?
