Unable to install an HP M1217nfw Multifunction device on a Windows XP machine. I'm
not the first to look at this problem, someone else has tried to install the printer first
but with no joy so I was called out. Basically the driver starts to install and everything looks Ok
You then get to the point where it asks you to connect the Usb cable and windows
detects the printer, it carries on for a bit and you get the message Cannot copy a file when that file already exists.
It then basically stops and doesn't install. I've also tried installing it through the network to eliminate any Usb issues but it does exactly the same. I've tried the HP CD and downloaded the driver from the HP website but the results are the same , I've also
restored to a point before the printer was originally installed but again the same. PC
is on domain network if this helps, SBS 2003 I think. There are other network printers installed and a old laser connected to the parallel port which has now gone to make way for this HP.
