Nothing is ever easy, it seems. I was unable to run the MS Install and Uninstall Troubleshooter ("MSDT was not able to load your diagnostic manifest. Please contact Microsoft Support."), so I have reached out to MS Support. They are supposed to call me later today. I will let you know if it was successful.

Thanks for this. The only issue I found is that this failed initially for me because my username has a space in it. When I replaced %username% with my username in double quotes, it worked fine.

 

Hope that helps anyone else struggling with this method.

 

Thanks again.

Hi ShlomiL,

 

I do have an HP ProBook Core i7 Windows 10 / 64 Bit  and the Printer is Color Laser Jet Pro MFP281fdw.

I have the same problem as mentioned above. I am  administrator and i cannot uninstall the old software and so on...

Thanks for helping me,

regards,

Mat

Dear all,

 

sorry, to bother you with the same question, but I also have a problem uninstalling the old HP Officejet Driver.

 

I recently bought an Officejet 9012 and wanted to get rid of my Officejet 8600 Installation. But when deinstalling the old software, I get the following error message.

 

Anmerkung 2020-08-08 081014.png

 

I also tried the fix from ShlomiL with the solution:

takeown /f %windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository /r /d y
icacls "%windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository" /grant %username%:(OI)(CI)F /T
for /d %G in ("%windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\hpwia*") do rd /s /q "%~G"
takeown /f %windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository /A /r /d y

But this does not work on my PC. 

 

I do have a Windows 10 Notebook, Lenovo E480.

 

Thanks for helping me out.

Hi,

Is your OS language is German @M-Ulmer?

 

If so, please try below syntax instead:

 

takeown /f %windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository /r /d j
icacls "%windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository" /grant %username%:(OI)(CI)F /T
for /d %G in ("%windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\hpwia*") do rd /s /q "%~G"
takeown /f %windir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository /A /r /d j
