Question about HP DeskJet 3940 InkJet Photo Printer

2 Answers

Lost my installation CD and downloaded the software from HP but doesn't work

Hi,

two years ago I purchased the HP deskjet 3940 but somehow i lost the installation software. So i went to HP support website and downloaded the software 3900_enu_win2k_xp.exe.
After pressing install and starting the installation, all of the sudden the installation stopped and showed me following error message:
This registry key does not exist and is required for installation to continue!
slbcsp.dll
sccbase.dll

I mean what is this?
I want to install a driver for a printer and the software ask me for some .dll files which i can't find on my machine!
That's really weired and never happened to me before.
Normally it should be a piece of cake but what went wrong in this case?

Thanks for any help

You can download the printer drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model printer and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -
