This usually means a driver conflict or problem. Try downloading and installing the latest driver for your printer & operating system from the HP website. You will find the drivers/software under the support section. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

    That would be an issue that HP tech support would know. I do not believe they have a standalone installer option but that it is incorporated into their software package. It might be a conflict between your operating system & HP that their tech support may be able to work around. Hope this helps.

No printer installer

I'm not sure exactly what "no printer installer" means, but in order to get a copy of the software you need for the HP Deskjet D2660, you can get it on the HP web site here:
You just need to enter your operating system, and then click on "Drivers." I would recommend selecting the option for "Basic Drivers" to download. HP is known for including a lot of bloated unnecessary software with their printers. So just go for the basic drivers.
If you do have any HP printer software already installed on your computer, would recommend uninstalling the software first. The process of uninstalling the software depends on which version of Windows you have. If you let me know what version you have, I can give you steps.
Also, do not plug the printer into your computer until the HP software tells you to.
Hope this helps.

Windows Installer can't find destinations.msi

If the option is there, usually when you have an OS disk there is a repair option. Try that and see how far it gets you.

Installer Option Plug In will not load for HP Officejet 6310

Hey Rich,

Here is the latest updated driverpack for the 6310:

Try installing that instead..

Or if you want to persevere with your disk, I suggest maybe right clicking on the installation .exe file, when you explore the disk, and clicking properties and running the program with admin privileges.. it might seem that you, in fact, ARE the administrator but Vista has the annoying User Access Control feature that has caused me problems in the past. User Access Control is only useful in an office, I have mine turned off. You can do this in Control Panel, User Accounts...
Anyway, I would probably suggest that latest driverpack download.

Hope you get sorted :)
Season's Greetings!

Hp deskjet 3745

Are you plugging it in before the software prompts you to plug it into the computer? If so it could be auto detecting and installing, so there is another installation in progress. I would unplug the printer from the computer and restart the pc. See if the software will install, when prompted by the installer plug it in.

In most cases when you go to install a printer your not supposed to plug it into the computer until about 3/4 of the way through the install process.
