I put a clean copy of Windows XP Pro on a Dell computer. After updating everything, and download the latest driver install program from HP, I eagerly install the printer.
Everything is fine and all, up until step 2 of 4 in the driver and program install, I am promoted with a cryptic "Access Denied" which halts installation. I have checked the HP knowledge base, and found a tool that would correct this problem for 90% of people. Guess who is in the 10%?
So how can I install this simple printer in Windows XP, this printer worked previously on this machine, also with the same version of Windows XP, flawlessly without any issues.
And Yes I am installing this program as a System Administrator, and running the setup file as the Administrator. I shouldn't be getting these messages. Help?
