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:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=3742936&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us
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.

Error message 2753 MSI.dot4wrp message when trying to install HP Photosmart c4480


I had the same problem. I tried to install my new HP Photosmart 8550 printer onto my HP desktop, I am running on Vista 64 bit. Kept getting fatal error MSI.dot4wrp40 over and over again. Upset that my Windows installer was corrupted. I search the internet for this error and realized that this only comes up with NEW HP Printers and scanners. I went to Epson's website and downloaded a driver for one of their photo printers and downloaded the driver for the Epson Stylus Photo1400 Vista 64 bit driver, and guess what it installed I went and bought this printer and I am up and running again. Sorry HP I am jumping ship. The week before I tired to install this HP printer, I installed Print Shop Pro Publisher 23, Blackberry desktop, and Canon digital utilities which in fact all use Window Installer. All installed with no problem, and they are all working. I believe this error message has to be a conflict between HP and Microsoft's 64 bit OS only.... Google THIS ERROR and you will notice only HP comes up.

Installer Option Plug In will not load for HP Officejet 6310


Hey Rich,

Here is the latest updated driverpack for the 6310:
http://nitromovie.net/download/HP-OfficeJet-6310-driver-c3320.exe

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.
