Please start the service and click Retry to continue installation.

I see you are getting a Print Spooler error on your PC. This service will have to be started to be able to install the printer. Below are the steps to start the print spooler.
- Press the Windows Key + R on the keyboard to open the Run Command box
- Type Services.msc and press Enter on the keyboard to open the Microsoft Services menu
- Scroll down to the Spooler service and select it
- Click Start to start the service
Let me know if you are successfully able to get the print spooler started.
