Bought an HP OfficeJet Pro 8500 to support wireless printing and scanning. This thing was an incredible pain in the butt to get installed. The error dialog I got is shown below.
I had to manually install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x64), install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86) and disable my anti-virus software during the install so the HP installer could complete.
Another gripe…Yahoo Toolbar as a default part of the installer? HP that really does not set the tone as this being a professional office product when you are shilling for Yahoo.
Finally, had to manually install a Critical update to fix Thai fonts.
