Question about HP Photosmart C4150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Having problems with installation

I am trying to install the software for my hp photosmart C4150 onto my new computer using software downloaded for the internet. when i try to install i get error code 1603. I've tried to manually fix the problem myself using instructions from the site. The problem seems to be that my computer does not give me the option to change the destination of the software. When i click download only it gives me the option to save file or cancel. when i choose save file it automatically saves to a predetermined destination. it will not allow me to neither change the file name or destination. The icon appears on my desktop burt it seems to be saving some critical piece of info in my pictures because when the error code comes up it mentions a problem with the codeing there. HELP PLEASE!!!!! I've tried and tried but it all comes back to this. What am i doing wrong?
