Well, nothing seems to work for me. This 8600 Plus is becoming a real pain. All I want to do is uninstall it and then reinstall the software. I get the Error 5 message. I am the adminstrator but a new install will not run.

Hi I have admin rights on my computer and I tried it but I still have no access to the files / access denied:

 

C:\WINDOWS\system32>takeown /f %windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository /r /d y
Fehler: Ungültige Syntax. Der Wert 'y' kann für die Option '/d' nicht verwendet werden.
Geben Sie "TAKEOWN /?" ein, um die Syntax anzuzeigen.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>takeown /f %windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository /A /r /d y

 

Can you help me with this issue - I can not deinstall and install the new software - I am using an HP PC and my printer is a HP Office Jet 5740.

Hi,

Try changing the syntax by replacing the Y (Yes) with a J (Ja), may you see any difference?

 

For an HP PC:

 

takeown /f %windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository /r /d j
icacls "%windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository" /grant %username%:(OI)(CI)F /T
takeown /f %windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository /A /r /d j

@ShlomiL I see your below instructions, and I also note not to follow them as I have different printers than the ones in the OP.

 


@ShlomiL wrote:

 

Before following any further, please make sure that the HP printer is the only HP device you have, any HP Device will be affected.

 

If you have multiple HP printers or an HP Computer, please stop at this point and let me know what exact HP products your have and DO NOT follow any further steps in this post!




I am trying to uninstall the HP Photosmart Plus B210 series, as I have just installed my new HP OfficeJet Pro 8020 Series.

 

As above I am getting the same error:

2020-04-25 09_57_09-HP Photosmart Plus B210 series Basic Device Software.jpg

Is it possible for me to rectify this issue using your suggested method?

Hi @Benno85,

you should be able to resolve it by following the standard steps, just keep in mind that if the 8020 printer is already installed, it will have to be uninstalled and then reinstalled too in order to work.
