Fatal Error Install Message

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

trying to install most current software/driver for HP Photosmart C4750 printer. Software downloads but after successful install the next step is product configuration. During product configuration  I receive "fatal error installation" message. HP error report seems to think I am operating a windows 8 version when in fact I have updated to windows 10 2004 version. I was also told to check firewall software and to make sure UDP port 427 is unblocked. I don't know how to do this. Could either of these issues be the problem the that is causing the "fatal error" message?

@Rick205lk Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that you are getting a fatal error while installing the software.

 

Please refer to the below link.

 

https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c02266980

 

I would suggest you try the Windows built-in drivers. Follow the steps below: 

  

•    Go to Control Panel - Devices and printers - Click on "Add printer" and follow the on-screen instructions. 

•    When the page prompts for the drivers, select "Windows update". The driver list will be updated. 

•    Click HP, Hewlett Packard, or Hewlett-Packard in the Manufacturer pane, and then click the name of your printer in the Printers pane. 

  

Refer to this document HP Printers - Installing and Using the Windows Built-in Print Driver for help
