I have been using the HP Solution Center software with my Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless AIO Printer for years. Today, when I opened the software, it does not work. The splash screen shows up like this, (See attached photo). I believe, "End of Life (EOF) for Adobe Shockwave", has something to do with this. I know it is an old Printer and Software. My question, is HP going to address this issue or not? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time!
HPSE is a subset an older Full Feature Software suite.
HPSE features are very similar to the HP Scan Software released after 2015.
Although HPSE appears to be a separate software, HPSE is dependent on the infrastructure provided by the Full Feature Software. The Full Feature Software for your printer should be installed before installing and using HPSE.
