Officejet 7610 and 7110 software corrupting each other on Windows 10 64 bit machines.
We have two HP printers an Officejet 7610 and an Officejet 7110. Both are a3. both are connected by wired network.
Whenever I install the two software packages from the HP website, the two software products are corrupting each other.
Only on Windows 10 64 bit machines.
Works fine on the three Windows 7 machines.
Periodically, scanning won't work. So it's a matter of reinstalling, during which the printers get messed up.
If you attempt to print to one printer and it prints to the other.
You create a link to one software packarge and it opens the other.
An utter, utter shambles.
SMB 1.0 is enabled.
I've tried completely uninstalling the both and starting again and they go back to conficting with other during the installation.
I've messing around with this nonsense for months now.
and it's happening for all three of the W10-64 bit machines.
IT IS NOT AN ISOLATED PROBLEM !!!
Has anyone else got hthis problem?
Has anyone got a system for installing the two, so they're not tramping over the top of one another?

- Now again open "Run" - Type “spool” and ok - Go to PRINTERS folder - delete everything in that folder.
- Go to services again - Start the print spooler.
- Now check for issue resolution.
- If the issue persists, also try clean installing the printer drivers. Here are the steps:
- First, unplug the USB cable from the printer if present.
