Why does printer software take so long to install

Why on earth does HP printer software take so long to install.

I did a full remove of all old sotware - it insiosted on reboot.

 

The Printer is Photosmart Premium CQ521B   connected by USB 2 to a  fast computer.

 

A full Microsoft office install was only 20mins

 

It took  63 mins ... which seems insane amount of time for a printer application.

Me too. I've been sitting here for 2 freaking hours waiting on this piece of dog crap software to load. HP products BLOW.

Re: Why does printer software take so long to install

I agree. What is the HP Printer Driver installer doing? Just copy the driver files to the computer and activate them. Don't collect information, don't evaluate anything, just install the files needed. Don't install extra utilities or anything other than the software required to print and scan. I guess morons are making the decisions about what the installer does. Why aggravate new customer with crappy and slow installer software? This installer is ridiculously slow.
