Hi, I just bought a brand new HP Color Laser Jet Printer MFP M177fw and I cannot get the software to install. I've used the CD that came with the printer, I've downloaded from the HP site and used the assistant etc., the software keeps giving me errors installing. I've rebooted several times with no success.
I did struggle with networking this to my router and had to reset the router/modem back to factory and set up a new network and this is working. I had to install another HP software just to use the scan feature, but apparently with HP this will expire in 10 days unless I can get this HP software to install, then this scanner software will activate with it.
My laptop is an Asus running Windows 7 (Service pack 1), 64 bit, dual processor (1.30GHz each), 4.00GB RAM, . Windows all updated to recent specs. Hard drive partitioned c and d drives, C: 116GB 7.27 free, D: 334 GB 109 GB free.
I am wondering if there is enough room on the C: drive to install this software even if I'm not getting any indicators to this fact. I usually use D: drive for all my downloads and install non Windows specific programs to D; drive just to keep C: free, but it looks like programs share files on both drives. I've tried to clean up C drive many times, but unsure what is safe to remove without messing up the whole system.
Appreciate any help or insight you can give me.
