Recently did a clean install of XP Pro. When I go through the "New Hardware" wizard for my Deskjet 870cse (parallel interface), it ends with "Cannot Install" error ... no other explanation. Same result if I go through the "Add Printer" wizard.
HP website does not offer drivers ... they are "included in XP"
What should I try next?
Thanks

OK ...SOLVED!
What I had to do was disable plug n' pray in the "Add printer" wizard, and install manually. Now it works!
