A.  WHAT IS INCLUDED ON THIS DISK

This disk contains the DOS RCP and a SYMSET utility.  If you use DOS 
software applications, you will want to install the software included on 
this disk. 

The DOS RCP and Symset utility are not required for you to print, but they 
provide additional benefits when you print with your HP LaserJet printer. 
For more information on these utilities, refer to the sections following 
this one. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------

B.  INSTALLING THE DOS RCP AND SYMSET UTILITY

To install, follow these steps: 

1.  Be sure that your HP LaserJet printer and cables are set up and 
    connected to your PC according to the instructions in your HP LaserJet 
    Printer User's Manual.
2.  Make sure that your printer is plugged in and ready to print.
3.  Insert the HP LaserJet DOS Utilities disk into your flexible disk 
    drive (usually A: or B:).
4.  At the DOS prompt, switch to the drive where the HP LaserJet DOS 
    Utilities disk is located (for example, A:).
5.  At the DOS prompt, type INSTALL and press the ENTER key.
6.  Follow the instructions on the screen.


Once you have installed the DOS utilities, you can run the installation 
program again with the following command: 

    ->  At the DOS prompt, type INSTALL and press the ENTER key.

For information on starting and using the DOS utilities, refer to the 
following sections and the Help module within each utility.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

C.  THE REMOTE CONTROL PANEL

The Remote Control Panel allows you to view and modify the printer's 
default settings from your computer.  This is useful if you are running 
DOS software applications that do not support some or all of the printer 
features that you need.

Once you have installed the DOS RCP, you can start the it with the 
following command: 

    ->  At the DOS prompt, type RCP and press the ENTER key.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

D.  THE SYMSET UTILITY

The Symset Utility allows you to print pages that display the characters 
contained in various symbol sets.  Symbol sets (or character sets) are
specific collections of alphabetic, numeric, punctuation and special 
symbols in a given font.

Once you have installed the DOS RCP, you can start the Symset 
Utility with the following command:

    ->  At the DOS prompt, type SYMSETS and press the ENTER key.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

E.  TROUBLESHOOTING 

    This section provides possible solutions if you are having problems
    installing, starting, or using the DOS utilities.    

     1.  CANNOT INSTALL THE DOS RCP 
     2.  CANNOT START THE DOS REMOTE CONTROL PANEL

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    1.  CANNOT INSTALL THE DOS RCP

    Because the Remote Control Panel must be able to receive data from the 
    printer, it will work only with a direct-connection Bi-Tronics 
    parallel port.  Therefore, if the installation program cannot detect 
    bidirectional communication, you will not be able to install the DOS 
    Utilities. 

    The following is a list of some things to check if bidirectional 
    communication cannot be established:

        (1)  You are using a parallel cable, and the parallel cable is 
             securely connected to both your PC and the printer.
        (2)  Your parallel cable supports Bi-Tronics communication.
        (3)  Your PC is directly connected to your printer.  Most
             devices connected to both the printer and your PC, such as 
             switch boxes, print spoolers and networks, will prevent
             bidirectional communication.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    2.  CANNOT START THE DOS RCP

    Once you have installed the HP LaserJet DOS utilities, you should be
    able to start the utilities with the commands discussed in the preceding
    sections.  If these commands result in the error message "Bad Command 
    or File Name", you probably need to add the HP LaserJet DOS utilities 
    directory to the path you type.

       To do this, note the directory where you installed the HP LaserJet 
       utilities (the default is C:\HPLJUTIL) and add the following to 
       your autoexec.bat file: 

          PATH=%PATH%;C:\HPLJUTIL

       If your autoexec.bat file already contains one or more PATH 
       statements, add this statement after the existing PATH statements.  
       Otherwise, add this statement to the beginning of the file. 

       Once you have modified your autoexec.bat file, reboot your computer 
       for the new path statement to take effect. 


    The Remote Control Panel cannot communicate correctly if the DOS 
    VERIFY command is set to ON.  If you have the Verify command set to 
    ON in your autoexec.bat file, either remove the command from the 
    autoexec.bat file or set it to OFF and then reboot your computer.  

       Setting the VERIFY command to OFF will not cause problems on your 
       computer, as this is the default setting.  In fact, it may increase 
       the performance of your hard disk.
