Fatal Error during installation when installing an HP Printer – Windows XP

Spent hours trying to figure this out and here is what fixed it.

Start, Run, Services.msc

Check and if found stop the following services

Pml Driver HPZ12
Net Driver HPZ12

Delete the following files:-

C:WindowsSystem32HPZipm12.dll
C:WindowsSystem32HPZinw12.dll

Also if you have specific errors, install the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility, run it and delete the error message files from the list.

Good luck!
