IEEE 1284.4 is a spec for a parallel port.  Many new computers do not have one.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_1284

The downloadable drivers from the manufacturer should be able to install this.
If you allow the Hardware detection wizard to access Windows Update then I wound have expected Windows 7 to be able to find it there itself as well:

Control Panel - System - Advanced System Settings - Hardware Tab - "Device Installation Settings".  Select the "Yes, do this automatically" box where it says "Do you want Windows to download driver software and realistic icons for your devices_?"

What is the name and model of your printer and what version of Windows are you trying to install it on?

I tried that but it did not work.  What did work was downloading the global print drivers down from HP and then manually install each questionable element.  After each of the drivers were installed, the printer worked with no errors.
