I have just installed a new print server using Windows Server 2022 and migrated printers off an existing 2012 server with the associated print drivers, it looks likely that some of the older drivers are not working so when I try installing some new HP print drivers I am getting an error that says the OS is not supported and references Windows XP . Has anyone had the same issue and got a resolution

    HP will likely be your best resource for troubleshooting this issue.

    So instead of just installing the print driver, I had to go old school and extract the install files from the HP provided executable, and then install by browsing to the inf file.
