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.
