Re: HP Officejet Pro 8600 software will not open--windows 8

Hey we2005,

 

What happens when you try to open the HP Printer Assistant software for the HP Officejet Pro 8600 on your Windows 8 PC?

 

Do you get any errors or does it simply do nothing?  

 

How is the printer connected to this PC?

 

How did you install the program? (from a CD or a download)

 

I need a little more information to be able to best assist with your issue.

I am having this same problem. The HP8600 is connected via a wireless connection. The print function works but when I click on the HP8600 desktop Icon it will not open to allow use of the scan features etc.

Hey REO3715,

 

Do you get an error when you try to open the HP Printer Assistant software?

 

Does it do nothing?

 

Does it open a notepad with some crazy looking text in it?

 

There are a few things that could be wrong and want to make sure I have the full picture of the problem at hand.  

 

  • What is the Operating System of the PC connected to the Officejet Pro 8600?
  • Did you install from a CD or a download?
  • Have you recently upgraded your Operating System, such as Windows 7 to Windows 8?

Jason

when I go to scan on my oficejet 8600 wireless....every time I hit the icon link...it wants me to install the driver again.. The printer works fine.  I ran the sortware to fix it and it scanned fine....only messes up when I use the shortcut....windows 8....

It pops up a window asking permission to give access then wants to  "add a new printer?"
