Service NetDriver HPZ12 and PmlDriver HPZ12


  • Hi,

    I'm migrated my print server from Windows 2003 to Windows 2008 R2 Server. Finally got to migrate print queues and drivers for x86 and x64. (2 drivers for x86 has installed after import the configuration file with Remote Administration Tools for Windows7).

    Now, I see that there are two services in service control manager taht I can't understand their function: NetDriver HPZ12 and Pml HPZ12. This services was installed too in Windows 2003 server.

    Are they necessary? Waht is their function?

  • This is HP software monitoring the print devices.  Most people do not know they are there.  Other people remove them as soon as they get reinstalled.  HP would need to provide the complete explanation for their software services.
