OfficeJet D155xi all-in-one Installtion CD
ANSWER : I know it is now 8 years later but I had the same issue. I bought a D series which includes 4 printers that all use the same driver/software, the 125,35, 45, 55 in plain and XI flavors. Yes the printers are ancient and out of production. HP removed ALL support for ALL retired printers from their site, drivers and software. It IS available elsewhere. CNET,NO DEVICE, SOFTPEDIA are good choices as is OLD APPS. All .com’s. Another choice is EBAY, either the OEM or a good copy. SILICON GUIDE is a good brand. Even a seller might be willing to run off a copy. I do not use a network device other than a router for 4 computers, 2 active and 2 ports for test lines. Routers are PUG AND PLAY. It is rare that the CD, if you have one for yours needs to be run. Hope this helps.
