Plotting to older HP plotters on Windows Vista causes error messages during plot and when closing application in autocad


Attempting to configure an HP DesignJet 70 or DesignJet 500 series plotter, based on the system printer, fails in Windows Vista with the message, “Autodesk Hardcopy component has stopped working”, and you are unable to plot.
Additionally, closing AutoCAD after printing to one of these printers displays the error message, “AutoCAD Application has stopped working”.


The following new drivers from HP allow these plotters to plot correctly on Windows Vista:
DesignJet 70 Series
DesignJet 500 Series
