I am trying to install my Officejet 3833 on my older computer that runs XP. I downloaded the software pack OJ3830-FULL_WEBPACK_1119. It extracts until it gets to 100% then it stops. I have downloaded it directly on the computer and also on my newer computer and moved it over on a card.
Any ideas on how to get this to complete installation or is there another program to use? I only need the driver.

as @Dvortex is out of the office, I'm replying to you. I appreciate the steps you have performed and have certainly done a good job. I have read your post comprehensively and understand that the printer drivers do not get installed on WinXP.
I suggest you to try installing the inbuilt printer drivers in Windows. Please review the below steps:
Search Windows for devices, and then click Devices and Printers in the list of results.
Click Add a printer.
Figure : Clicking Add a printer
Click Add a local printer.
Figure : Selecting Add a local printer
Select Use an existing port (USB001: Virtual printer port for USB), and then click Next.
Click Windows Update, and then wait for the print drivers to update.
Click HP, Hewlett-Packard, or Hewlett Packard in the Manufacturer pane, and then click the name of your printer (OfficeJet 3833 All-in-One) in the Printers pane.
Click Next, and then follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.
Disconnect the printer USB cable from the computer, and then reconnect the cable. You can now use your printer.
NOTE: If the printer does not print after installing the inbuilt drivers in Windows or of the drivers are absent for OfficeJet 3833 All-in-One in the list of drivers then choose the drivers for HP Deskjet 990c and install them. The drivers for HP Deskjet 990c should serve the printing purpose.
I sincerely hope this fixes the issue. Keep me posted. Cheers! 🙂

I did some further research and suggest you to try the following:
- Disconnect the USB cable from the computer.
- Reconnect it after a while and check if the computer detects that a device has been connected. Sometimes the Windows operating system will auto install the drivers.
If that does not work then try searching for the "Temp" folder on your computer and clear/delete all the contents of the temp folder. Try reinstalling the drivers again.
NOTE: Do not connect the printer to your computer initially during the installation. Later in between the installation, there would be a prompt to connect the printer and that's when you may connect the printer.
If none of the above steps are successful in installing the printer then try creating a new user account, and then start the computer in safe mode, make sure to login to the new user account after, and try the install again.
Hope it works. Good luck!
