    Error installing HP printer (0x000003e3) on Vista

    I'm trying to hook up to a HP 3550 that's hooked to an XP machine. Other XP
    machines can access and the Vista machine can see it but produces this error
    (0x000003e3) when it tries to install the driver.

    Any help obviously appreciated. Thanks.

    Google on that error shows up that Alan Morris here dealt with a
    problem involving that error message although perhaps under different
    circumstances so watch out for a reply from him.

    995 ERROR_OPERATION_ABORTED <--> 0xc0000120 STATUS_CANCELLED


    Normally the XP driver won't work on Vista.

    Create a Local printer
    Create a Local Port in the form\\XPmachine\printshare
    Add HP Vista driver
    Next...
    Finish

    Thank you guys so much! I have been trying to solve my printing problem for weeks. I finally sat down tonight, determined to fix it before I went to bed. All my printouts kept coming out centered on the page!

    This simple solution fixed it beautifully!

    The method of fixing the issue by adding a new port works an absolute
    treat with the HP Officejet K550.

    I cannot thank you enough!!
