My hp director refuses to open - HP Office Equipment & Supplies

  • benita sandi Nov 27, 2008

    When I click on the hp director icon the ''eggtimer'' appears briefly and the icon highlights but then the ''eggtimer'' disappears without achieving anything and the highlighting goes as well. I have tried both by double clicking on the icon and by right clicking on it and then clicking on open but neither approach is effective.Hope you can help with this.

I accidentally deleted my hp director icon from my computer i dont know how to restore my hp director


Hi,

If you have just deleted the icon from desktop and not uninstalled then we can put a shortcut back on desktop

Click on START button
click on MY Computer
OR
Open MY Computer icon from Desktop

Open Local Disk C:\
Open Program Files
Open HP Folder
Open Bin Folder
You will find a file by name HPDIREC
Right click on the file name and Click create shortcut on desktop ( this icon will not look exactly like the HP Director icon you deleted )

Close the window and you will find the HP Direct icon on desktop

If not, you can uninstall the software from Add/remove programs under control panel and install the latest software for your printer. Click on the download button below to open HP website to download the software by selecting your operating system

Hp 6110 all in one hp director not working.

2. Press the Alt key and the Space bar together, and then
select Minimize from the menu that displays in the upper left corner of the window. If necessary, click it again until HP Director minimizes.

The HP Director software now appears as an item on the Task Bar .

3. Click HP Director on the Task Bar . The software opens and displays normally.

4. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 every time the HP Director software is used.

If the patch or the updates did not work on the link I sent you try this Workaround: Open HP Director each time you use it If the update to HP Director is not available, or if you have installed the update and the HP Director window still fails to open, try this workaround.
  1. From desktop, double-click the HP Director icon to load the program into the memory. HP Director will not open at this step. Do not click anything else on the screen until Step 2 is completed.
  2. Press the Alt key and the Space bar together, and then select Minimize from the menu that appears at the upper left corner of the window. If necessary, click it again until HP Director minimizes. HP Director software displays as an item on the task bar (the row of open software programs that appears at the bottom of the desktop screen).
  3. Click HP Director on the task bar. The software opens and displays normally.
  4. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 every time you use HP Director.
    NOTE: The HP Director window might appear larger than normal, but the software is functional.
Cause In October 2006, Microsoft released Internet Explorer 7. The HP Director software that shipped with some HP products introduced between 2002 and 2004 may not be compatible with Internet Explorer 7. The HP Solution Center software, which replaced HP Director software on products introduced after 2004, is compatible with Internet Explorer 7 and does not exhibit this issue.

Hp director


It could be about this: I had same problem until I found a review somewhere - even HP technical support was totally useless - until HP FINALLY decided to up date its drivers to account for my/many people's downloading of Internet Explorer 7. As this is now done, and you cannot easily uninstall IE7 and go back to IE6: try again (1) HP Director and if not (2) I think update drivers or (3) uninstall / reinstall. Hope it helps.
