Hp l7780 won't complete install

I was told that is has something to do with the registry, the printing software installs to 96% then just freezes, no error messages appear. Ive updated my pc and made over 20 attempts of installing/uninstalling the software with disc and from hp's website. I'd rather not re load windows as I have so many necessary programs. i have windows xp os. anyones help would be greatly appreciated

    Same problem. L7780 installation freezes after abt 96% complete. I previously had successful installation and a functioning printer. Then I returned my computer to HP for repair after a new problem arose and computer would not boot up. HP returned the repaired computer, and they noted that they also replaced SP2 with SP3. Now with the same installation disc and same computer, the installation fails. I believe computer is looking for certain program(s) from SP2 that are not present in SP3. However, this is just theory. Perhaps someone knows if this theory is plausible and if it is possible to revert back to SP2 without causing other problems.

    Just to make sure...are you installing the software BEFORE plugging the USB cable in? Only plug in the cable when promted by the software. Comment back.

First, try running the installation as Administrator. Right click on the executable and select Run as Administrator. If that doesn't work, go to that registry entry and make sure that System and Administrators have Full Permissions.

I have had the same problems with this unit and on various machines running both xp and vista. Uninstall completely. Then, unplug machine from the computer. Download the full software solution and before running it, extract the software to somewhere on your computer and leave it there. Then run the installer normally but when asked to connect the device, skip and choose to install the device later. Complete the software install and then when it's finished, plug in the usb cable. The installer should pop up and begin to install the device. Open the device manager and manually choose the ALL the drivers for your unit by choosing the autorun.inf in the folder you previously extracted from your hp download. Upon completion of all the correct drivers, the hp install utility will complete.
I believe the problem lies with a mixing of native windows drivers and the HP drivers which are required for this software to work correctly.

The mirroring issue is a driver fault with the "Printing Shortcuts" that HP provide.

There is a firmware update and new driver which seems to have cured this on the L7680 (same as L7780 without the wireless and expansion paper tray).

Suggest you completely wipe the existing driver using the tool on HP's website before you install the new driver just to be sure nothing lingers from the old one.
