0x000003eb when installing HP Printer

Hi guys, happy new year.

I am trying to install a HP printer on a Dell running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, but when I try to install the printer connected by USB, the installation comes up with an 0x000003eb error.

I've tried removing the drivers from Properties for PrinterServer -> Drivers.
Tried to download the newest driver, still no go.

I am pretty sure its a local problem, because it installs just fine on my own PC, with the same OS.

Any ideas? :-)

Kim

Hi Kim,
happy new year to you too :)

Regarding the problem you have, can you please check for SET1.tmp - SETFFFF.tmp files in your local folder c:\windows and c:\windows\system32 ?
You can safely delete all those SET......tmp files. After that please try to install the printer again.
Please let me know if this helps.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
