I just had the same problem and just figured out how to solve it thanks to a
tip from another member on this page. Here's what you do. So you're
experiencing an error message that says "This system does not meet one or
more of the minimum requirements needed to install this product." and you
have windows vista. You have the install cd that came with your
4-in-one-printer but when you try to install it, that damn error message
pops up and you've already made sure you are the ADMIN since there's nobody
else as a registered user on that computer! I know, it's annoying.
First, go to: http://h20331.www2.hp.com/services/c...97-0-0-225-121
If the above link doesn't work just google "hp drivers vista"
Then you need to find:
Enter a product name / number:
Download drivers and software (and firmware)
for product: _____________>>
Search for your specific HP model. For example, I had the hp psc 1610
All-In-One printer, scanner, and copier. Just type in hp psc 1610.
Then it will ask you for a more specific model if it exists. Select the
appropriate model if you know it and continue.
Then it will ask you to select your operating system. I had Vista basic
home edition and just clicked "microsoft Windows Vista" (not 64-bit. Not
too sure what the difference is to be honest).
I then came to a screen that had "Driver" above some text that says "HP full
feature software and drivers." Click that and you can check to see if the
latest driver is installed correctly, or you can do what I did, scroll down
and click the "Install Now" black button. Since the CD doesn't work with
Windows Vista, this button will install the latest version for you without
having to run the CD which for some odd reason doesn't want to run using the
"RUN AS" command.
From there, just install as prompted and your headache should now be over.
Hope I was helpful
