I understand that you are receiving the error to install the All-i n-one software while scanning from the printer front panel.

You have not informed whether the unit is connected in network or with USB cable.

However, follow the below given instructions to resolve the issue.

Verify that the communication between the computer and the printer is fine and the full version All-in-one software is installed in the computer.
Solution one: Verify that the Digital Imaging Monitor is ready The Digital Imaging Monitor must be running for the scan to feature to function. The Digital Imaging Monitor normally displays in the system tray in the bottom-right corner of the computer screen, which is next to the time. The Digital Imaging Monitor is ready when a check mark displays on the icon. This can take some time after startup to complete the initialization and for the check mark to display on the icon. If the Digital Imaging Monitor displays in the system tray, proceed to Solution two - Populate the destination list . Search for the file " hpqtra08 " in your computer and run the file. Solution two: Populate the destination list Here are the steps to set the scan options: 1. Open the HP Solution Center. 2. Click Settings. 3. Click Scan Settings and Preferences. 4. Click Scan to… Setup. 5. Click the Destination List tab. 6. If the Front Panel Destination List is empty, this is the reason the All-in-One is generating the error message, and you should continue with this procedure. 7. Click each program that you want to display in the scan to list. 8. Click the Add arrow. 9. Click OK. This should resolve the issue that you are experiencing with. Regards, Lawrence

When I hit scan to, it tell me to install or run HP software for this feature. What do i do to fix this problem.

You install or run the HP scanning software. This machine doesn't scan other than to copy, unless it's connected to a computer with scanning software running. The machine needs to know how to scan, and where to send the image before it will scan.

Mac OS 10.5 Leopard

I was able to get my 6110 to scan by downloading HP_Installer_PSC7100_v9.7beta.dmg .  I saw this on XLR8YourMac for another HP multi-function and on a lark I decided to try it.  During the installer it won't detect the 6110, but you are able to "Skip" to the next step until it's installed.  Then, launch "HP All-in-One Device Chooser" and you will see the 6110 listed.  After I choose it there, I was able to use "HP Scan Pro" with the 6110.  I've not really tested the rest of the applications.

HP ScanJet 7650 asking for DPE

This problem happened to me to (OfficeJet 6310xi). These steps solved my problem:

When the program has the error, there's a button so you can show it where DPE is. Click the button
Navigate to Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Hewlett-Packard/HP Scan Pro/DPE/
Click on DPE

Then I could scan to pdf. When I upgraded to Leopard, I reinstalled my HP software, even though HP says it isn't totally compatible with leopard.
