There's an entire thread on the HP site - and after i spent one night and an escalation with the support people in India, I got so fed up that I moved back from XP SP3 to XP SP2, and then it worked again.

Error 2753 HP3050


If it is related to the infamous Fatal Error, MSI.dot4msi, code 2753 of HP installations, then it is not a compatibility issue, but an installation problem.
The HP un-install does not clean its previous installations well, causing some of the dll-s to be locked by Windows, thus disabling install of the new software.
What you need to do is manually delete any trace for HP previous installs from your PC.
Search for HPz*.*, HPw*.*, HPq*.* files, and delete them. Those files that you cannot delete - rename them and delete in safe mode.
Also, search the registry for any HPAIO entries - delete all of them.
Then, reset your PC, and install the new software.

It worked for me (and this is the only thing that worked...)

Good luck

Fatal Error while install software for HP C8180 printer, Vistax64


Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Fatal error installing HP 3055 all in one


OK, here is my debugged/tested solution.

I know your error refers to a different installer MSI file (CIOUM32.msi) but the installation component in your log file (ipm12.A4B24390_80AD_4BAF_B8FD_C670FE0DB586) is identical to the one that was giving me trouble as well (i.e. points to the same service/file). So it is definitely worth a shot to try this solution out as it will only take a few minutes.

My Scenario:

OS: MS Windows XP SP3 [Version 5.1.2600]
Printer: HP LaserJet 3390 (AiO) (Firmware datecode: 20070331)
Printer Connection: Connected via Ethernet with a static IP address
HP Driver Version: v4.0 (hp_LJ3050-3052-3055-3390-3392_Full_Solution_AMWE.exe)

Ran into same error that everyone else is experiencing. (see below)

Now Launching=X:\hpzmsi01.exe -m dot4msi -l XXX -f X:\DIVins??.DAT
Error message received: The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2753.
X:\HPZBDI32.msi failed with return code 1603
MSIInstall() failed with 1603
Exit code=1603

After debugging HP's installation scripts for 2 days, here is the cause & solution I identified to this specific install error. Once I got passed this error, everything installed without error and all functionality was working properly (including scanning!).


BACKGROUND:

Microsoft Installer (MSI) error 1603 is simply a generic "A fatal error occurred during installation" -- see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa368542(VS.85).aspx. This is basically MSI telling you that something very bad has happened during the installation. In order to get more details, you can turn on MSI debug logging by following this MS Knowledge Base article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/223300).

The MSI error code 2753 is the code for "The File '<file name>' is not marked for installation.". This error can be triggered by many scenarios, but usually, it has to do with the actual installation script not properly checking for the existence/non-existence of an installation file and then not marking it for either installation/removal. I know this sounds confusing, and it is. If your curious about all the possible causes, just Google for "msi 2753 not marked for installation" and you'll see lots of results which you can peruse for your own enjoyment.

In order to identify what was causing these 2 errors, I enabled debugging for MSI via the aforementioned MS KB article

CAUSE:

Certain HP services (and associated DLL files) were somehow partially/improperly installed. (Possibly, from a previous failed install?)

The Windows services (files) were:

Pml Driver HPZ12 (C:\Windows\System32\HPZipm12.dll)
Net Driver HPZ12 (C:\Windows\System32\HPZinw12.dll)

The existence of these 2 files in the System32 directory was causing this error in my situation. Somehow, the installation script was not identifying that these files were already installed (or improperly installed) and failing to properly set them to be installed again.

SOLUTION:

Steps:

1) Check to make sure that the 2 Windows services above are not running (or not installed).
2) Rename/delete the 2 associated service DLL files (this will only be possible once the services are stopped)
3) Run the installation again.

If all goes well, the install should now run without any issues.


Hope this helps since many people (including myself) have spent a lot of time (and HP Support chats) trying to find a workaround for this issue.
