I think you are installing your printer’s software using a standard account. Because you are installing a driver for a particular hardware, this will require an administrator account or a user account with administrative privileges. Setup will not allow you to use the “Run as administrator” option.

This option in Microsoft Windows is frequently used to elevate a process like when you need to run a command in an elevated command prompt. But before you can use this, you must be already using an administrator account. It will not work on standard, non-admin user accounts. To install the driver for your printer properly, log in using an administrator account.

If you don’t have an administrator account, ask someone with an administrator account to install the driver for you. To download the driver again, head down to HP PSC 1315 All-in-One Printer and select your correct operating system from the list.
