HP Officejet 7500A not compatible with Win XP Pro 64-bit?

I just purchased this great new Wide Format All-In-One printer and failed to read the fine print that DID NOT list Windows XP Pro 64-bit among the supported operating systems. Apparently all other operating systems 32-bit or 64-bit are supported, just not XP 64-bit. I really don't want to return the printer or have to upgrade both my desktop and laptop computers which are both functioning perfectly on Win Xp 64-bit.

I contacted HP and they basically told me that I was SOL. Any other solutions or work-arounds out there? The disk won't let me even install the software, it simply says my os is not compatible.

  1. finally after 1 hour i've solved the problem.

    i've gone to printer and fax (i don't know the right name i have windows xp 64 in italian language)
    then i've add manually a printer.
    i've selected "printer connected to the pc"
    i've create a new tcp/ip port and give the ip that has the printer (now the printer ip is manual not with dhcp)
    then printer install but not work.
    after i've gone
