This error occured after I messed around with printer drivers – perhaps I deleted a little bit too much in the registry. Whatever – it was not possible to add a HP Universal Printer Driver to the PC. I always ended up with the errormessage mentioned above. I had no problems installing other printer drivers.
I’ll make it short:
I ended up in renaming the following files in %systemroot%\system32\driverstore:
Before I was able to rename these files I had to take Ownership of these files. I really don’t know if it was a good idea to rename the files but afterwards it was possible to install the Printer Driver and the system is still up and running. And… I had to reinstall other printer drivers too.
So if anyone has more info about these files… let me know.
