Wireless Printing: Microsoft Windows

warning_icon_gradientFirst time printing from your Microsoft Windows device?

To get started, you will need to complete a one-time download for each of the following:

  • Download PaperCut Print Manager for Windows

    PaperCut: Windows

    1. Download and install the PaperCut Client; your NPCUID is required to download the file.
    2. Locate and install “PaperCutInstaller.exe”
    3. Sign in to PaperCut using your NPCUID.

  • Download the HP Universal PostScript Driver

    HP Universal PostScript Driver

    A note about the HP Universal PostScript Driver:

    It is not mandatory that you download the HP Universal PostScript Driver in order to print wirelessly, but it is highly recommended.  By downloading the Universal PostScript Driver now, you avoid the necessity of selecting a specific driver later in the printing process (if you were to select an incorrect driver it could cause your job to print with errors or not at all!).  If you do choose to download the HP Universal PostScript Driver, please follow the steps below (click on any of the images to enlarge):

    1.  Click to go to the HP Driver Download page and then select your operating system from the list.  From the list of available drivers select the “HP Universal Print Driver for Windows PostScript.”

    2.  Click on “Download” and then wait for the download to complete.


     3.  When the file has finished downloading, click on the .exe file (step 1) and then click “Run” (step 2).


     4.  Next, click “Unzip” to extract all files.


     5.  If asked, click “Yes” to allow HP to make changes to your computer; then click “Yes” again to accept the license agreement.


    6.  From the “Installation Mode” dialog box, click “Dynamic Mode.”  Then, click “Next.”


    7.  When the installation process is complete, you will see the following screen; on this screen, click “Finish.”


    8.  The HP Universal PostScript Driver has now been installed; however, this process also installs a ‘print object’ in your device manager, which it is best to delete now to avoid confusion later.  To delete this unnecessary print object, click on your start button and then on “Devices and Printers.”HP_universal_open_devices_7_redo

    9.  Right click on “HP Universal Printing PS” and then click “Remove Device.”


     10.  If you’ve already installed PaperCut, you’re now ready to print!

4.  Click on “Add a Network, Wireless, or Bluetooth Printer.”

8.  When the printer has been successfully installed, you will receive a success message; click “Finish” to exit the installation area.
