Try recovering the program. 

 

  1. Click Windows Start button and in search box type "recovery manager" . Select Recovery Manager from the list when it becomes available. 
  2. Click Software program re-installation and click Next , and then follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the desired software program  which would include HP Connection Manager from the list.

Try this document. Sorry For some reason I was under the impression you Had Windows 7. Sorry about that. You need to recover "Drivers & Application" Reinstall.

HI.

When I search for "recovery" only two options are showed.

HP Recovery Disc Creator and Theft Recovery

 

There's no Recovery manager.

 

Thank you.

Re: HP Connection Manager for Windows 8

But I'm following the document.

Step 4 - ".... and type recovery"

Step 5 - "... Click Recovery Manager"

There's no Recovery Manager option only the two mencioned.

 

Don't forget that My notebook came with Windows 7. I just upgraded, from Microsoft Offer, to Windows 8.

 

Thanks.

Re: HP Connection Manager for Windows 8

OK, knowing you upgraded to windows 8. Connection manager doesn't come with Win8. 

 

Windows 8 has a built in connection manager in the charms bar you can use. When you installed Win8 you should have got an error message asking to repair the application.

 

I should have told you that earlier, I was confused with the entire issue and you only had 1 simple question. Sorry !
