I get the same error mentioned here -

However, HP has discontinued the point & print drivers. The way I had to get
the current driver set to work was a rig using pdrvgen.exe which usually
works fine, however this is the first new printer we have added at this
location in years.

No, there is no way I can upgrade to nw65/oes2/iprint, $0 budgets do not
allow for that. This "new" printer is from a plant closing in another state.
