Today, when I was printing some documents using my Hp printer, it printed the documents but, after five minutes when I tried to print some more documents, it was showing this ‘unable to install printer error 0x00000006’ message. I tried to restart the system, uninstall and reinstall the drivers, but it is still showing this error. How can I fix it?

The first thing you have to do is to uninstall the driver, which is currently installed in your system. Follow the steps to do so-

For Windows7-

  • Open the ‘Control Panel.’
  • Uninstall the drivers from there.

For Windows8/10-

  • Open ‘Run dialog box’ by pressing ‘Windows’ key and ‘R’ key simultaneously.
  • Type ‘Control Panel.’
  • Click on ‘Run.’
  • Open ‘Devices and Printer.’
  • Right-click on ‘Network Printer.’
  • Click on ‘Remove device.’
  • Select ‘Yes.’

Now the second step will be to add the printer as local. Use these steps to do so-

  • Go to the ‘Device and Printers’ window.
  • Click on ‘Add a printer.’
  • Select ‘Add a local printer.’
  • Click on ‘Create a new port.’
  • Cross-check the type of port; it must be ‘Local port.’
  • Click on ‘Next.’
  • Now, you have to type the network path and name of the network printer. Type it in the following format ‘ComputerName\PrinterName.’
  • Now, you have to follow the instructions appearing on the screen, it will complete the installation process of the printer drives.
  • Click on ‘Replace the correct driver.’
  • Click on ‘Next.’
