HP print drivers



  • I was having issues installing HP print drivers today (m452fdw). Through troubleshooting this, I saw in event viewer that it was failing to install some version of .net 1!

    That was in addition to the Windows update system being completely broken on the thing.

    Edit: I should mention that I did get this fixed. Bad enough that I thought everyone should know.



  • Does that driver come with inf file that you can use to install drivers through add/remove printers wizard?

    It does, and that hadn't worked for me either. Even went so far as to try adding the driver into the "print server settings" manually. Nothing worked till I got the windows update services fixed.

    I wonder what the dependancy was? .Net 1?

    Something that shouldn't be around anymore is all I know. It was .Net 1.3 something
