Failed Installation

[ Edited ]

I'm trying to install the full feature software for the HP Photosmart C6180. Each time I attempt it fails and gives me an error: A specified file cannot be found.  I'm running Windows 7-64 bit.  Anyone else having this issue? Here's the screenshot.

Hi marlonmc,


It looks like something is messed up with the installer. I recommend to "scrub" the system of the current software and reinstall it by doing the following:


1. Type %temp% in the run field

2. Delete everything in that temp folder (if something cannot be deleted, just skip it).

3. Download & run the full feature software and drivers from here (it should atleast extract the necessary files):

4. Again, type %temp% in the run field

5. Look for, and open the folder starting with 7z (Example: 7zS2356)

6. Open folder Util

7. Open folder CCC

8. Run the L4uninstall.bat

9. When the uninstall has completed restart the computer

10. Run Disk cleanup from Accessories\ System Tools

11. Download and install the latest version of Adobe flash player

12. Download & run the full feature software and drivers again



Let me know if this helps or not (post another screenshot if you get the error again).

Re: Failed Installation

I am having the same failed install for a officejet 5600 (5610) series.  I am getting a very similar file missing causing it to fail.  I will do the items that I can from your response.  Any further links or instructions would be great~

Re: Failed Installation

Hi 48fan,

I understand that you are having an issue with a failed installation. With the steps provided above, have you been able to install the software?

If you have not been able to install the software, are you getting the same error 'The system cannot find the file specified', or is another error message coming up?

Thank you.
