That is pretty odd, particularly if it installed without incident. The only other things I could suggest is a) to see if it works on another computer and b) maybe uninstalling and reinstalling it to see if you get the same error message.

Beyond doing a Windows Update to see if the drivers need to be updated, I'm slightly stumped with this one.

The only other thing I can think of is that it might be a hardware issue, at which point, you might want to try testing another printer if you have one available to you, otherwise, I'm skint on additional suggestions.
