    W2K19 Server - No HP printer drivers

    Hi there
    I'm running a W2K19 server as a Virtual machine - and trying to install an HP MFP M28-31 series Laser printer.

    Ms detected the printer and I can print without a problem but that's all -- no scanning etc. I logon to the HP website - it detects the OS bizarrely as W10 X-64 but their software fails with "Os not supported". Same thing happens if I try and use the W2K16 server version.

    These are quite new printers and there's almost no drivers at all on HP site for W2K19 server -- now I don't know about how most organisations run central (or dept) printing systems but I would have thought using a server to share a printer should be "Normal".

    Of course if you logon to W10 and set the thing to shared printing it works - you have tio install all the printer stuff on the "remote W10" machine - a bit of a nuisance for loads of PC's which might logon to the server itself via "Virtual Desktop Infrastructure" anyway or what if you need to work on the server locally. Scanning and saving to a network directory is also a requirement I would have thought pretty mandatory in most offices.

    (Since W2K16 server is due to be replaced by W2K19 and W2K22 servers I'm surprised that HP haven't got their act together -- most things I've installed on W2K19 server have been bog standard W10 apps and they all work without a problem so how much work is it for HP to fix this).
