Officejet 8500 Cameradrivers.msi Not Found

During the installation of my new Officejet 8500 a909a the installation wizard stopped and asked for the path and folder location of Cameradrivers.msi.  The installation wizard wanted to look in a TEMP folder it had created.  Installation halts waiting for this information.  If I cancel out of it, it kills the installation and produces very limited access to the Officejet's capabilities. I have searched all of the file and folders on my workstation for reference to this MSI executable. I have searched the system reg (REGEDIT) for this MSI executable.  I have downloaded the drivers and software for my past and current digital cameras and my web cam looking for this executable .... nothing, anywhere. I purchased this Officejet last Monday and had different installation problems each evening that I attempt to install the software.  I have contacted HP Total Care On-Line Chat for solutions each evening and spent anywhere from 1/2 to 2 hours on line with them, with 0 (ZERO) results.  Sometimes Google searches will yield results, other times playing with the issue with produce progress.  The most successful results have been from a level 4 uninstall found on the CD that came with the AIO.  I am now able to get this piece of system (POS) about 96% of the way through the installation before it fails. Ethernet What is this installation software looking for and where do I find it.
