    First, thank you for your response to this problem. I have CCleaner installed along with RegistryBooster. I have used CCleaner to clean the registry, but not RegistryBooster which presents many more registry problems than CCleaner. I did delete a couple of keys related to HP (which were listed in RegistryBooster but not CCleaner) using RegEdit.

    Here is a more detailed accounting of the error I've been encountering which HP has not been able to help me fix.

    Error Situation Code: 04766427

    Now Launching=X:\hpzmsi01.exe -m dot4wrp.01 -I XXX -f

    X:\CIOUM32.msi failed with return code 1603

    MSIInstall() failed with 1603

    Exit code=1603

HP Deskjet F2210 won't install on Vista

Go to control panel/programs and features and uninstall the HP driver and all associated software.

Reboot, then reinstall the LATEST version written SPECIFICALLY for VISTA SP2. Install the driver BEFORE you connect the printer. After you install the driver if your computer still doesn't recognize the printer, leave it connected and reboot.

You should see the 'found new hardware' wizard open and automatically install the printer.

Hope this works. Good luck.

Go here to and click on your specific model, then click on 'Software & Driver downloads', then your Operating System, and you should now be able to download the correct driver package for your printer. I hope that helps. Bundled software with printers and other devices is often out-of-date.

HP Deskjet F380 All-in-One Compatible with vista

I had the same problem. I could print, but not scan.

However, if you open up Paint and go to file and scan, it will scan your document. For some reason, using the scan button on the printer itself will not work with Vista, but using Paint will. I also heard that using Windows fax and scan will also work.
good luck
