Kodak 5100 AIO Software Installation Problem

When installing AIO Software the status bar gets just about to the end and then it comes up "AIO Software encountered a problem and must close", I can't even get to where you plug the usb cable in. I've tried installing the software from the disc and from the web and neither work. I've unistalled the program between installations through add/remove programs and through the Kodak Clear program, doesn't make a difference. Anybody have any idea what's going on?

Try uninstalling your .net framework then installing the kodak software. it has .net 2.0 on the CD and will reinstall it.

Go to add / remove programs and remove Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0

Then do an install from either the CD or the Web download.

I know it's late for an answer to this problem but hopefully it will help someone out there!
I had exactly the same problem but thanks to me knowing someone in Kodak from when I worked there, I was able to finally elicit a solution. In fairness, the problem is really associated with Microsoft (surprise, surprise) and the solution is spelt out in in my case under Section B (Windows XP). There are a number of registry entries to check and in my case there was a string value WlNotify.dll missing from DLLName (note that it is a lower-case L between the W and N!). I also had a string entry called OldName ironically, which contained the value WlNotify.dll, I wonder where that came from? Anyway, after a final run of the Kodak Clear Utility and a reboot and running the aio_install.exe from the Kodak web site everything came right.

Don't use the easyshare software, I had the same problem when I first installed my printer. Let windows find the printer and point the found hardware wizard to the disc, it might take a while to find all the different drivers since they're scattered in different folders, but at least you'll be able to print, scan, etc.

I have to agree with you Zeizz. We bought our 5100 in the fall of 2007. After...

Tip of the day:

DO NOT buy a KODAK printer. It is pure **** but worse is the service you'll get from Kodak when you run into a problem.

Their service or lack of service makes me wonder if KODAK isn't about to go into receivership. There is such a desperate tone to their way of doing business these days it makes you wonder.

I've owned all HP printers at home and at work and NEVER had a problem with one of them.

The Koday 5500 displayed a printhead error the same day I purchased it and the issue hasn't gone away.

Stay away from ****.

What "Printer" to choose?

Your pronter should have come with a driver disk. You should disconnect your printer from the computer and run the installation from the disk. When prompted, connect the printer to the computer to complete the installation.

Installed with enclosed disc

Looking at the setup guide, it does indeed tell you to not connect the usb cable until prompted by the software. It is Step 7.

Here a link to the setup guide:

Kodak 5100 AIO Setup

Kodak Support has step-by-step instructions for uninstalling and reinstalling the software. Just make sure you remove the USB cable from the computer and reboot before you reinstall.

Here is the support page to begin on:

Home Center will not open...Can't scan

I needed to reload my AiO Home Center software and no one seemed to have the correct procedure. Maybe if you remove & reinstall yours it will resolve your problem. This procedure worked for me on my XP-machine:
1. got to Control Panel/Printers&Faxes and delete the printer
2. go to your Hardware/Device Manager/Universal Serial Bus Controllers, right-click on USB Composite Device and select Uninstall
3. go to Control Panel/Add/Remove Software and remove the EasyShare software
4. disconnect the cables from the Printer
5. download from the program "install_aio.exe"; run the program
(I selected only AiO+EasyShare+Software Updater to load)
6. followed the prompts after the sw installed to reconnect the Printer cables
7. rebooted
