The print processor does not exist- Unable to install the printer

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi. I have been trying to install the HP laserjet printer but get the error “unable to install printer, the print processor does not exist”. I have tried using the usb connection also but it is not working. I also tried installing it on a new PC but got the same error message. OS being used is Windows 7(32-bit). What steps can be followed? Thanks in advance.
