I have the same problem described by TheBaz:
- jsut after the upgrade to Windows 8.1 the C7280 stopped to work as scanner.
- I tried to install the latest drivers and software manually chosen from HP site, but during installation I have the same massege reported by TheBaz
- I tried to use the guided installation, but it stops during the download of files: I tried several times but at the end of the download a message like "download was cancelled" appears. (I also disabled the antivirus during the installation).
Now I have an unusable printer, I waste a lot of time trying to install it... I am very disappointed!!!!
Please anybody from HP can help?
Thanks and regards

Has anyone gotten the software package to install under Win 8.1?
I can get the Install Wizard to install a basic printer driver, but the full software package doesn't install.

Welcome to the HP Support forums. I understand that you are having problems getting the full feature software and drivers to install for your Photosmart C7280.
To better assist you, would you please provide some further information:
- Have you tried downloading the full feature and software and drivers from the HP.com website and saving it to your desktop and then running the file?
- Are you trying to install for a USB connection or a wireless connection?
- Did the Printer Install Wizard give you the option to choose the full feature software?

Hello Guys from HP,
I've the same problem the printer is working find but not hte scanner.
Do you understand that we are several users who download the full drivers kits for the Photosmart C7280 "PS_AIO_02_Net_Full_Win_WW_140_408.exe" and this package is not working on Windows 8.1. There is an issue with links and the setup file is not able to find the other files. HP Doctor app is not able to solve the issue. I've uninstall and re-download the drivers several time.
Hope someone in HP is able to quickly solve the issue otherwise I'll have to move to another brand of printer.

I downloaded the setup installer for drivers and software (package: PS_AIO_02_Net_Full_Win_WW_140_408.exe) from the HP website. After running it and getting through the extraction phase, I reach the main menu of the installer. After clicking install I receive a pop-up message "The system cannot find the file specified." Retrying does nothing. Please advise, I cannot use my printer.
I have Windows 8.1 64-bit Upgrade from Windows 8.

I found a post from another community member that I feel will resolve both the scanning issue as well as the 'can not find file specified' error. Please follow the instructions in this link. Completely remove and reinstall software.
Please let me know if this resolves the issue or not. I will gladly provide additional assistance.

I followed the instructions to completely remove the software using the L4 Uninstaller and that seems to have removed everything correctly, however when re-running the installer I encounter the same error as above. This time I tried to click on the Readme button to see what that would do and it gives an error that it cannot find a file as well.
"Windows cannot find "C:\Users\Arthur\AppData\Local\Temp\7zS61D2\setup\
I tried to traverse to the directory to see which folder did not exist and it was the ".lang." folder under Readme. In the Readme folder there are a series of subdirectories for each language pack. I suspect there is a missing environment variable or system setting that this program is trying to use to build a dynamic path and in it's absense uses ".lang."? Any further suggestions?
