Your computer does not recognize the hardware changes immediately. You may try these steps so it would be able to work:

  • Open Computer Management console
  • Go to Device Manager – WSD Print Provider
  • Right click 'WSD Print Device' & click uninstall
  • Install printer normally using add printer wizard.
  • Now installation will fail with same error message.
  • In device manager – right click on the name of your computer & select scan for Hardware Changes.
  • Now it will find the newly installed device & the printer will work properly.

The printer may show installation failure if the printer driver or installer is not compatible with the operating system that you have. Depending on your operating system e.g. Windows XP or Vista, you must obtain the updated driver from the printer's website and once you've downloaded it, you can now proceed with the installation process by running the EXE FILE of the printer, which you can find on the downloads folder or whatever folder you usually download files on your laptop.

Run and follow the instruction on the screen. Be sure to have your printer connected via USB port on your laptop and must be turned off while in installation process. After you successfully installed it, you can now open it and use it.

You can also checked if it's properly installed via Control Panel Folder in Start Menu.
