Hewlett Packard Laserjet 1015, Airport, Bonjour and Windows 7

As per the title, I had an unhappy half-an-hour trying to get this little bundle of joy working together this evening.  Turns out that the following process works rather well…

  • Install Apple Bonjour Print Services for Windows
  • Plug the printer into the Windows machine directly over USB, or manually get Windows to update its hardware drivers list.
  • Once the driver has been successfully been downloaded and installed for use over USB, the driver is now available for the Bonjour wizard to use.
  • Plug the printer back into the Airport Express/Extreme that’ll be sharing it.
  • Run the Bonjour Print Wizard and follow on-screen prompts.
Logical in a way, but a pain to figure out.
