    Virtual Pdf Printer Driver Won't install and Fixes won't work

    You might be able, if needed, to get the old version, here at oldapps web site (disclaimer: I do not vouch for this site... check any and downloads with your fav malware/antivirus apps): Old Version of PrimoPDF for Windows XP

    PrimoPDF forums are down it seems... however, I found this at PCReview forums, quote from "Unable to Install "Software" Printers":

    Same solution on MSDN thread, "cannot install printer driver in XP Embedded":

    To do so kindly follow the below given steps:

    • Right click on printer’s driver that you have downloaded from manufacturer website.
    • Click/tap on Properties.

    error 0X800f0214 when installing printer driver - Microsoft Community

    Hi Plamen,

    It could be the driver is not installed properly or has got corrupted. We would like to ask for additional information. Please provide the following:

    • Which build of Windows 10 are you using? To know about it, hit
      Start, type Winver and then press
      Enter. You could also press Windows Key + R, type
      Winver into the
      Run dialog and press Enter.
    • Aside from installing the printer device, were there any changes made on your computer prior to the issue?
    • Can you tell us what troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Furthermore, we suggest that you try to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver and see if the issue persists. We highly suggest to check the website of the manufacturer of the said printer to know the compatible driver for your current
    Windows 10 build.

    As a reference, we also suggest that you check this article to troubleshoot printer problems for Windows 10.

    Looking forward to the requested information and the results of the recommended troubleshooting steps.
