I have been trying to package up the HP Officejet H470 print drivers to install on workstations before users connect the printer. I have the CD from HP that came with the printer, but no MSI was available on the CD. I tried using the setup.exe with no success because it doesn't allow me to create a response file. I tried to find out what options were available with the /? after the setup.exe, but it didn't work.I also tried to just load the inf. files and did a setup capture with no success. I did see on this site that someone had information about uninstalling the H470 drivers, but nothing to install. Can someone please help me with this issue. I'm not sure what else to try.

H470 HP setup.exe doesn't run with a silent switch as it presents a GUI to select components to install. All is not lost though.

Setup.exe unpacks 29 MSIs into logged on user appdata\local\temp which you can then grab a copy of. When trying to work out how this installer did its stuff I ran it manually first on a test machine and selected which options I wanted to install.

After that I checked the Windows Application Log to identify which MSIs were installed. After that create applications in the standard way - assuming you use SCCM 2012 applications. If you use Packages and Programs you'll need to do that that way. Once you have all the MSIs created you can put them in a TS or Application Dependency chain.

Assuming you're deploying in large scale environment where users can't self-install I wouldn't recommend including hpupdate.msi. As the name suggests it's a "phone home" application that runs a version and update check.
