HP Deskjet 5740 Printing Over Network on Windows 7

HP Deskjet 5740 Printing Over Network on Windows 7

(OP)
I've been trying to install my HP Deskjet 5740 on my Dell Studio XPS 1640 notebook over my home network. Windows finds the printer on the network and attempts to install the driver but an error message comes saying "Windows can't find the driver for HPDeskjet on the network" when I press ok it asks to locate the INF file.
I tried many locations on my notebook but it still doesn't find the file. I then copied the INF file from the desktop that the printer is plugged into and then tried to install it but then it says it can't connect to the printer.

If it matters at all I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64Bit

The Desktop the printer is plugged into is running Windows
XP Professional 32bit

And I was able to install the printer on another Desktop over my network that was running Windows 7 RC 32Bit with no problems

Thanks in advance
MChiarovano
