HP-G85 drivers didn't work in Classic?
Authored by: mguske on Dec 23, '01 06:47:08AM


just installed the Office Jet G85 Software under Mac OS 9.2.1 and it works (already installed the 2.0.6 patch software from HP).

I assumed, that I could use the "whole" G85 functions within Classic mode - like I described before - see ScanMaker V6 USL entry in this section - -
but it doesn't.

I always got the info from printer panel "could not load printer driver" - nor fax or scan or print -

Does anybody has a hint, what I have to do to get the G85 printer up and running within classic mode?
Do I have to copy anything from my start-folder (from MacOS9.2.1) into a "special folder" for classic mode?

I assumed, that classic mode uses the same startup folder for those things like Mac OS 9.2.1 native does, because the reside on the same Partition (I use the default installation from Apple: 1 Partition for Mac OS 9.2.1 and Mac OS X 10.1.2.)

Thanks in advance,

Addendum for Classic Mode

just checked. I could use the OCR-Feature chosen from HP-Director. A scan is done and the bundled Software Readiris comes up with the scanned picture and does its job.

I also start a copy process.
