Thank you for posting,


In order to resolve the issue, please make sure you are logging in to the computer as an administrator. If not try to login to the computer using an administrator account and then try to download the latest version of the software from the link given below:


Once the download is completed, please start the installation and check. If the issue still persists, please disable the User Account control and then try.


In order to disable User Account Control, please follow the steps given below:

1. Open Control Panel.

2. Under User Account and Family settings click on the "Add or remove user account".

3. Click on one of the user accounts, for example you can use the Guest account.

4. Under the user account click on the "Go to the main User Account page" link.

5. Under "Make changes to your user account" click on the "Change security settings" link.

6. In the "Turn on User Account Control (UAC) to make your computer more secure" click to unselect the "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer". Click on the Ok button.

7. You will be prompted to reboot your computer. Reboot the computer and login to the administrator account and try to install the software.

Re: HP Envy 110 vs Windows 8


The Envy 110 consitantly fails to print the 1st page of each and every document via Win 8.


Hence I am seeking to reinstall software (again)


Should I expect that this ftp download link will take > 1 hour to open? If not, perhaps you could propose another link/site?
