  1. Error 5 installing or uninstalling printer


    My printer suddenly stopped working from my computer but it works fine from other computers. In Devices and printers the printer shows but if you click on it it says driver unavailable. When trying to install the driver or uninstall the printer software I get this error 5

    Error 5 installing or uninstalling printer 4c343582-42ba-40a7-b5a9-723d44ed1857?upload=true.jpg I am the only user on this computer and show as an administrator. If I try to delete this folder or rename it I get another error that says I need System permission.


    Any ideas on how to go forward?

    Thanks

    Jim

    Can't share printer—getting error message

    Step 1: Go to store.
    Step 2: Buy a less shitty printer.
    Step 3: Pick up some beer while you are there.
    Step 4: Enjoy both your new printer and your beer.

    In all seriousness, I have had more issues with Lexmark printers and their shitty drivers then any other manufacturer, HP is a close second though.

    However, if you don't want to get a new printer*Laugh :laugh:, and I can understand that, when my Lexmark was giving me the same troubles in Win7(and Vista) I had to make sure the Windows firewall was ON and the firewall service was enabled and running. After I shared it I could re-disable the firewall and firewall services.

    Can't share printer—getting error message

    Not working... I see the printer, but when I go to add it, I get this messge: "Windows could not connect to the printer (error 0x0000000d)."

    I installed the 32-bit drivers for it and printed something out from the pc the printer is connected to, and I went to the additional drivers page and added drivers for 64-bit, and when I went to add the printer on the other machine, it copied drivers over, but after that I got the error message listed above...

    Win 10 - Uninstall/Print Problems

    Hi,

    I appreciate for trying the steps to uninstall the printer.

    Before we proceed with troubleshooting, I would need little information on the issue.


    • Is the printer connected through wired or wireless?

    • When you say “uninstall/remove device from system part just hangs with a green bar that continues blissfully” what exact error message/error code do you receive?

    • Are you the admin of the computer?
    Let’s follow the steps below to uninstall the printer.

    As an initial steps, I suggest you to try uninstalling the printer application through Programs and Features and check if it helps.


    • If your printer connects to the computer with a USB cable, disconnect the cable from the printer.

    • Search Windows for programs and features, then click Programs and Features in the list of results.

    • In the list of installed programs, click your HP printer name, then click Uninstall or Yes.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the software removal.

    • Restart the computer.
    If the issue persists, try the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the below help article and check if it helps.

    Hope this helps you. Do reply if you need further assistance on Windows 10.

    Thank you.
