Re: error: unable to start driver for hpoipm07. exe

Hello CT003,

 

Thanks for the information, just what I was looking for, since you are experiencing a scan and copy error and your printer is compatible with the software I would start by running the HP Print Scan Doctor.

 

The HP Print Scan Doctor can be found by going to http://www.hp.com/go/tools The doctor is used to solve various problems that can occur that cause the printer to not print, scan or have overall connectivity issues. This is the first go to tool when attempting to resolve any issue that falls into those three buckets as it will either help resolve the issue or point us in the right direction as to what is causing the problem.

 

After running the tool post back your results.

Hello CT003,

 

Need some more information before we can start trying to find out what is going on.

 

What operating system are we working with?

What printer make / model are we using?
