Using Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 - which indeed is a flavour of Windows 7 64b SP1 - I cannot install the driver for my HP C410. Installation stops with this message:
This product type does not match the list of supported product types. (screenshot)
... and in German:
Dieser Produkttyp befindet sich nicht in der Liste der unterstützten Produkttypen. (screenshot)
The printer itself works standalone and is connected to the net. I have tried the software included in package and version 140.222 from HP's. Installation went fine with Win7 Pro SP1 64b of my wifes laptop.
What do I have to do to get the software installed? Or at least, how do I find out what is wrong/needs to be enabled?
First of all, thanks for your message. - Yes, I have already tried running the installer in compatibility mode (selecting Vista x64 there, though) and I have even extracted all the files and ran Setup.exe in compat-mode. The installer still does its detection and the error message appears.
According to Microsoft's own publishings, the (then new and now standard) driver model (WDK) allows for that kind of compatbility; which holds true in practice given all the hardware which works with my system. My guess is that HP has simply implemented an rigid OS-check and I hope that someone has an idea how to circumvent that.
There is a printer driver from HP's (v70.101.505.0) which works and has to be installed manually. Enables me to print; e.g., I cannot use the scanner at all. Maybe there is an installable scanner driver somewhere, too? HP, do you read this forums?
