- first tried to plain install HP1010 Vista 64bit driver on W7 64bit through 'add printer' wizard. Installs fine, but pressing 'Printing preferences' will kill explorer and no settings dialog... Went to google and found many ideas to use HP3050, 5200, and others... Than found this post mentioning use HP1015 driver instead of HP1010, as 1010,1012,1015 are in the same.
- but this is not the end... Now i have two drivers (NOT printers, but just drivers) in my system - one for 1010, another one is for 1015. So changed BACK driver to HP1010, and, magically, still have 'preferences' working!
Install Vista 64bit printer driver for HP1010, change driver to HP1015 (pointing again to the same drivers folder extracted from package), than change itBACK to HP1010. Duh! Do NOT remove drivers for HP1015 from system! (N.B.: you can use HP1012 instead of HP1015 drivers).
