Fails to add printer 0x0000643 error code

I just purchased an HP Photosmart Premium Fax All in One Series C09a.

Works wireless great with one of our HP PC's, the other does not (Sony Vaio). The pc detects the wireless printer just fine when I click to install the printer the following message is displayed:

The printer installation failed. Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000643)

I have tried 10 times I still get the same message back.

Thanks

A quick google of the error code returned this from Microsoft.

Can't add printer - error 0x000643. Corrected previously using ParetoLogic but unsuccessful after repeat.

I keep getting the above error message trying to install my new printer. Have used the accompanying disc with no success.

Re: Fails to add printer 0x0000643 error code

I had this problem when HP 5740 was installed using one computer in a wireless home network. Got the above error code when installing the same printer on a second computer.  I had to turn off the firewall on the second computer.  After the installation completed successfully and I turned the firewall back on, the printer was usable on the second computer.
