After installing windows 8 I could not access HP Solution Center for scanning from my Photosmart B209a All-In-One printer. I tryed uninstalling and reinstalling the software using the HP Printer Install Wizard for windows. When Reinstalling the driver/software it encounters an error and aborts the software installation.
Any suggestions on how to get this printer/scanner working again?
