On a wireless network, if more than one device has its SSID set to hpsetup, the all-in-one may freeze or stop responding. Solution Choose a unique SSID for the HP PhotoSmart All-in-One product by following the network setup information in the Basics Guide or Network Setup Guide for your product. Cause The all-in-one may hang or freeze if multiple devices in the area have their SSID set to hpsetup.

If the patch or the updates did not work on the link I sent you try this Workaround: Open HP Director each time you use it If the update to HP Director is not available, or if you have installed the update and the HP Director window still fails to open, try this workaround.
  1. From desktop, double-click the HP Director icon to load the program into the memory. HP Director will not open at this step. Do not click anything else on the screen until Step 2 is completed.
  2. Press the Alt key and the Space bar together, and then select Minimize from the menu that appears at the upper left corner of the window. If necessary, click it again until HP Director minimizes. HP Director software displays as an item on the task bar (the row of open software programs that appears at the bottom of the desktop screen).
  3. Click HP Director on the task bar. The software opens and displays normally.
  4. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 every time you use HP Director.
    NOTE: The HP Director window might appear larger than normal, but the software is functional.
Cause In October 2006, Microsoft released Internet Explorer 7. The HP Director software that shipped with some HP products introduced between 2002 and 2004 may not be compatible with Internet Explorer 7. The HP Solution Center software, which replaced HP Director software on products introduced after 2004, is compatible with Internet Explorer 7 and does not exhibit this issue.

Hp director


It could be about this: I had same problem until I found a review somewhere - even HP technical support was totally useless - until HP FINALLY decided to up date its drivers to account for my/many people's downloading of Internet Explorer 7. As this is now done, and you cannot easily uninstall IE7 and go back to IE6: try again (1) HP Director and if not (2) I think update drivers or (3) uninstall / reinstall. Hope it helps.

I can't get access on my PC to the HP Director.


Hi Seaner, I would suggest removing HP Director from the computer using Add/Remove programs in the control panel and then reinstalling. If that doesn't work let us know what operating system you are using, any error messages, problems, or changes that lead up to this situation. Also don't forget to rate this posting when done.
