    Similar problem..extreme frustration! I found that by installing the software for the HP Officejet H470 Printer (which I have) FIRST, then the scanner software, the HP solution Center under the printer software will make the scanner work. Don't have that printer? Install the software anyway and it will make it work easily.

This is for all those having similar issues. I had downloaded the software successfully. After more downloading of other programs it stopped opening. Then it disappeared from the screen. My solution was to go to the add/remove list and remove anything related to HP K80,  the all in one I use. After that I went to HP and reinstalled the K software driver from their site. I used IE8, download only, and then install. A long process. It is done when REGISTER screen appears. Choose no, don*t remind me and close. I also chose not to set up fax functions on screen. The printer is listed in the large printers screen, the fax is not. The director will now open from the desktop. I hope this helps.

Hi There! I am having problem opening my hp director program

    • From the Windows taskbar : Click Start , click All Programs , click the HP orHewlett-Packard folder, and then click HP Director .

HP Director won't open. I am on XP and IE7


HP Director has a flaw and is not compatible with IE7
I have a psc 1100 and I had to update my software from HP

CHECK THIS OUT

Go to HP, this link, type in your printer model #.

It still may fail to show...if it does not show HP recommends this
work around.
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.
