Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello trouble shooters,

I know it’s a simple problem but I got stuck there. When I try to install HP Universal printer I ended with an error message. The process went till adding the driver wizard. It also started to install the drivers, after some driver installation I got this error message. How will I complete the process? Please guide me. Thank you.

Unable to install HP Universal Printing


First of all, you’ve to get another machine with same driver installed and working properly.

On that machine,

1. Start Registry Editor.

2. Browse to “HKLMSystemCurrentControlSetControlPrintEnvironmentsWindows NT x86DriversVersion-3”

3. Locate the subkey for the printer driver you’re dealing with and then click the key for the printer driver.

4. Search for “InfPath” on the right. Remember the path.

5. Go to “C:WindowsSystem32DriverStoreFileRepository” >> the folder indicated by the “InfPath” registry value.

Now, check out your PC whether the folder in your system is present. In my case, it was empty. Now, copy the files from the working machine and paste them into your machine into the folder.

If you face problem, you have to take ownership of the folder. Learn how to take ownership of a folder.
