Re: Missing hpfmom12.hlp driver

Yo.

 

I had the same problem. My guess is it happens when you try to install the drivers in a different language than the default for your computer.

 

It's a pretty annoying problem, since it's just a help file that you don't really need. Fortunately, the solution is simple:

Use Windows Search (on XP, Start>Search...) to locate the files manually (probably somewhere in C:\Program Files\HP), then tell the popup window where they are. For me, I had to change ~~~~~\jpn\~~~ to ~~~~~\deu\~~, but yours might be different.

 

Best of luck, to you and the other 397 views so far... :-b

Re: Missing hpfmom12.hlp driver

Hi there! Piece pf cake!

 

You can find the file in your hp directory/digital imaging/{8EA67542-82B6-4c5c-8AD3-CD36232C1362} or {5469D537-9B44-4c78-BF2D-5F9807564F74} (mine was in the last directory.) /enu/drivers/com_lang

 

for exampel (this was in my case though): C:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\{5469D537-9B44-4c78-BF2D-5F9807564F74}\enu\drivers\com_lang and you will find the **bleep** "hpfmom12.hlp" Smiley Wink

 

Best Regards
