I desperately need help as I've been trying to install my HP F300 series software for quite some time now. Unfotunately, the installation only gets to the Checking Hardware part and then is very slow at that (5.4 KBps). After quite some time, a pop-up error telling me that "Another installation is already in progress. Complete that installation before proceeding with this install" appears. Of course, I hit 'Cancel' since I've already tried 'Retry' button and the error will still appear.
The thing is, this only happened after I updated my XP Home to SP2. I've never had this problem prior to this.
I've tried rebooting and then try installing again, but still the same. I've even turned off Automatic Updates just so no update would be running on the background. I'm quite certain that there are no other install going on (at least as far as I know and as far as the task manager is concerned) especially since I've tried the installation right after I've rebooted. Checking 'Add/Remove Programs' indicates that there are no HP products/software installed. I've even tried unregistering/registering the msiexec. My Windows Installer is already at 3.1 as part of an update recently. I have Windows Cleanup Utility and unfortunately, when I run it, no HP-related products is in the list.
I haven't tried checking the registry to look for pending applications or whatnot since I haven't got a clue where to check in the first place.
I'd really appreciate any help that anyone can give.
