My dad has just givin' me his HP Photosmart 1315 printer to use,the only problem is that the installation program is missing. He missed placed it and has no idea where it is. Does anyone know where to find the installation program on the internet. I've been looking and just can't seem to find it. All help would be appreciated.

The downloadable drivers are actually newer than the ones on the CD. Select an operating system and you'll see the download links:

I've wen to the website and downloaded the driver for Windows XP then I tried to run it and I got an error message that says that it is not a valid Win32 application.

Does anybody know what that means or how I can be able to download it.
Also HP won't help me out unless I want to pay because the warrenty is over.

Yep... Your error message "rings a bell".

Up until recently, I had a Photosmart 1215. Win 'XP won't let you run the setup program directly (or you'll get an error like you described).

If memory serves, you have to add the printer under Printers and Faxes, then use the "Have Disk" button when you get to that point, pointing Windows to the directory you've got the software in. Then, it runs all of the installation software.

Unfortunately, I threw out my Photosmart 1215 a month or so back (it was a good printer, but finally wore out with some plastic parts breaking off). So, I no longer havea similar model to test with to see what I had to do to get it installed.
