Error communicating with the scanning device

I just bought HP Photosmart Plus B209(a-m). I have installed the sw on tho PC's. But the scanning only works on one of the PC's. On the other one, the following error occurs: An error occured communicating with the scanning device.


Both PC'e are running Windows Vista. The working PC with Ultimate, the other one with Home Premium.


Any guidance to solve this problem.
