  1. Problem with each update install. Cannot use printer. Must delete latest update.


    Each time I receive MS update I can no longer use my printer Brother inkjet . I have to find latest update KB456960 and delete.

  2. Windows 10 update won't install printer driver - Error 0x80240017

    Recently I got a driver update for my HP printer delivered through the Windows 10 updater. It seems that the driver was successfully downloaded but cannot be properly installed, every time I try I'll get the following error:

    The printer is actually a network printer. I checked the driver through the device manager and the newest driver is supposedly already installed. So I went ahead and uninstalled the printer (which is now a problem since I cannot simply add the printer again because I have no access to the network currently) to get rid of the update error, but the error still persists. Troubleshooting the updater also has no effect.

    Now I wanted to check the registry entries (as was suggested here) for the printer in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print but the HP printer doesn't show up any more (maybe uninstalling was too early) and therefore I have no idea what registries I could delete without breaking anything.

    Does anyone have an idea on how to proceed? Maybe even a complete different approach?

    EDIT:

    • the suggested approach in the comments to install the HP driver suite didn't work for me

    Problem with each update install. Cannot use printer. Must delete latest update.

    Mac OSX USB printer problem

    OK i just bought the Canon IP4500 usb printer and installed it on the mac following hte instructions to the letter.

    No printer is found and i cannot add it in the Printer list, cause theres no option for USB printer installation, only Appletalk, Bluetooth, and Windows Printing.

    I have downloaded the latest drivers etc... but no luck *Bang Head :banghead:

    As it is i dont like macs but now with a simple thing as this i dislike them even more.

    Last resort is trying installing the printer on a Vista pc and see if it works, if it does then the mac is up to shit, if it does not install then the printer is up to shit.

    Anyone had a similar problem maybe and how did you overcome it?
