HP Color LaserJet CM1017 MFP on Windows 10

This post covers how I managed to get the HP Color LaserJet CM1017 MFP to work on Windows 10 via an USB connection.

Just plug it in. Windows 10 recognizes it out of the box. You might not get a lot of fancy features, but you are able to do standard things, like changing the paper size, paper source, and color scheme.

To get scanning to work I decided to use iCopy instead of relying on the old HP software. To get this up and running, I followed the instructions from: http://superuser.com/a/776290/127795 which basically says:

1) Download driver

I downloaded the HP CM1017 MFP driver for Windows Vista (x64). The driver package I downloaded was this 405MB package: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=1846084&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=2100 -> Software -> “HP Color LaserJet CM1015-CM1017 North America / Western Europe Full software Solution”

2) Extract the package content

Run the executable file: “hp_CLJ_CM1015-CM1017_v32v64_Full_Solution_AMWE.exe” (it is a self-extractable file) and unzip the content. Make sure to uncheck any checkbox related to autorun in the unzip dialog that appears – we just want to extract the files.

3) Update the scanner driver

Press “Windows + X” -> Device Manager -> Right click the unidentified device (HP Scan) -> Update driver software -> Point to the root of the archive you just unzipped -> Done

4) Install iCopy

I chose iCopy because I wanted to get support for scanning multiple pages without needing to install the old HP software. Based on this superuser entry: http://superuser.com/a/386889/127795 and this blogpost: https://www.golod.com/how-to-scan-to-pdf-for-free/ I found iCopy to be a good choice. I then went to http://icopy.sourceforge.net/download/ -> downloaded my copy -> and installed the software. When I launched the program for the first time, I was prompted to install .NET 3.5 – which I did (Windows takes care of that in the dialog you are prompted with). When that was done, I was able to launch iCopy and do multipage scan from the printer to PDF.
