  • Cannot open the Officejet Pro 8600 software in Windows 8.1

    I have 64-bit Windows 8.1.   I installed Officejet Pro 8600 e-all-in-one-made N-911 using OJ8600 - 1315.exe.   The printer and the software worked fine in Windows 7.   Windows 8.1, the printer works well wirlessly.   It prints, scans, and copies without problem.   I can use the printer window to start scanning and copying.   However, I have an icon on the 8.1 Windows Start Page that says Officejet Pro 8600.   When I click it, it opens a window labled HPSolutionsPortal.hta - Microsoft Visual Studio.  I don't get the Officejet software where I can control the resolution of the scans and files generated by the printer.   How can I access the HP Officejet Pro software?


    From the control panel select programs, then select default programs.

    Click associate a file or Protocol to a specific product type.

    Locate the prefix .hta , double click on it, click More Options and select the Microsoft (R) HTML Application Host instead of the selected Visual Studio.

    If you can not find this option in the list of scrool to the end and click on watch for another file on your PC.

    Navigate and select C:\windows\system32\mshta.exe.

    Confirm the changes and check for the difference.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 software / printer on Windows 8

    We just bought a new printer - HP Officejet Pro 8600.  We have 2 computers I want it to connect to eventually.  1 is a cable in the office (Asus) with Windows 8 & the 2nd. is a laptop (HP) with Windows 7 (two new computers within the past year).  I tried to boot with the Windows 8 a.  It seems I have to buy an 'ethernet' cable to start with - it says to plug into the wall - this does mean in our router?  The printer has all the details how to take the packing off the printer tape but the minimum for 2 types of cables.  2 problem is the software is not compatible with Windows 8.  I guess it's doable, but can someone tell me details on how to go about it.  I've seen some of this forum for Windows 8? RT the instructions would be the same?  On this computer, I'm stuck without 'ethernet' cable (comes with a USB cable - what is - this for?) & the fact that Windows 8 do not accept software.  It seems that if I go not for a good start but probably assume that everything is possible at some point?

    Our old printer is a cannon that has the "almost complete used ink absorber.  I plan on using that one with the laptop until it is completely 'dead' then would also like to work with our new 8600 printer.  I thought that it would probably be best not to hang it up until I have the old party?  What is the best idea or not?

    I'm not too computer 'savay' but my understanding is I would need to have a "cable in" via an ethernet cable and the other would be "wireless".  It gave me the idea that the printer can be anywhere in our House, but assumed it would be partly true since the ethernet cable should be near our router?  Is this a correct assumption?

    Any help appreciated.  Thank you.

    Hi SueSSue,

    If the printer is connected Ethernet you will not have to worry about getting a weak signal and possible connectivity issues, but with wireless, you are not bound to the office with the laptop. The option should be good in your case. If the printer is already at work, you can leave it connected to the way you have it. Let me know if you need help.

  • Printer HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus works but the Scanner does not

    I recently bought a Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.  My previous laptop is a Toshiba also upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.  I have a printer HP Officejet Pro 8600 more all-in-one printer.  The printer/scanner works fine with my laptop more older but with the new laptop that I can't get to the printer.  I am not able to get the scanner to work.  I reloaded the software several times but the scanner still does not work.  The scanner works fine with laptop more old, even if it has the same operating system.  I get an error message that says "Scan of the computer is turned on.  You can start a scan from the printer.  Your computer is not listed as an available computer control panel of the printer.  If please restart your printer and try again. "Can anyone help with this?

    Hi ranjisamaraweera,

    Even though I'm MVP I represent Microsoft or speak. If I can and will speak
    as I think.

    The proper functioning of the printer and Scanner is the direct responsibility of the producer of material
    and no windows. There are hundreds of these devices that work correctly on Windows 7 if
    those who don't have no drivers and other interfaces which are not compatible to Windows 7 should be
    written correctly. Of course many older devices are not supported by their creators for later
    Versions of Windows. Microsoft passes but does not write drivers and interfaces
    Printers and Scanners need to function properly. So, the manufacturer and no one else, is totally
    Manager to see if there are interfaces and appropriate drivers.

    Many device makers do not write new drivers and interfaces for older hardware because either
    they cannot support the new methods or because they want to sell new hardware.

    Personally, I don't think that Microsoft is lying because they also say that device manufacturers have the
    Omos unique to provide the necessary compatible drivers and interfaces.

    I hope this helps.

  • I need a printer hp officejet pro 8600 for win2000 driver

    Someone in the world has a print driver that works with a printer HP Officejet Pro 8600?

    The Officejet Pro 8600 printer does not support Windows 2000.  I'm sorry.

    However, there may be a workaround solution.  To clarify, I don't have a Windows 2000 system to test this with, and it can take a series of changes for the following steps to work with Windows 2000.  You may need to find the equivalent Windows 2000 for this process steps/formulation as it was done using Windows 7 (the process must be the same).

    It sounds weird, but the Deskjet 990c driver will work for the Officejet Pro 8600, and there's a Windows 2000 driver that is available for download.  However, Windows Update already has this driver and it's easier to use it instead to extract the executable driver and ending.

    Essentially, the printer must be added manually using the Deskjet 990c printer driver.  There may be other resources out there, but I found none on the HP site for the use of this driver instead of the Oifficejet 8600 driver. This will give you only the printing features and nothing else. In addition, there may be problems printing since this isn't an official driver for Windows 2000 for the 8600 (I have not noticed any problems when I did a few test prints).

    1. go where your printers are listed and select the option to add a printer.

    2. Select the option to add a local printer (maybe it's a network printer in Windows 2000).

    3. create a new Standard TCP/IP port.

    4. Enter the address of the printer in the field IP address Ip or host name.

    5. the selection of the pilot window should now be open.  Click Windows update will complete the printer selection screen (may take several minutes using Windows Update).  Select HP for the manufacturer and the printer Deskjet 990c for the printer.

    6 the name of the printer. The default value will be the deskjet 990c since it is the driver used, but I recommend to name what the printer is so that we know what it is.

    7. the sharing screen appears.  If you share the printer, enter the appropriate information.  Otherwise, click Next.

    8. at this stage, the process could be completed.  Print a test page to confirm functionality.

  • Hi, I have a problem in the installation, how to install acrobat 8.1 pro in 64-bit Windows 7 Enterprise is existing in Windows XP.  I just want to transfer the license Adobe pro 8 Windows 7 64 bit. What is the procedure?

    Hi, I have a problem in the installation, how to install acrobat 8.1 pro in 64-bit Windows 7 Enterprise is existing in Windows XP.  I just want to transfer the license Adobe pro 8 Windows 7 64 bit. What is the procedure?

    You need to install 8 AA on the new OS with your current S/N (the license allows 2 installs). After the installation, do all the updates if you expect any chance of 8 AA to run on the system. If the updates will be installed not in the menu help, then go to and install updates in the order. People seem to have been successful with 32 - bit systems and some have reported success with a 64 bit system. After installation, print something to the Adobe PDF printer to make sure it works. If this works, you should be in good shape as printing treat the bottleneck. There is a solution, but you shouldn't have it.

    If all works well, then go back to the old machine and disable this installing and uninstalling. Don't forget that your configuration is not supported by Adobe. It seems with every new version of Windows, MS seeks to make the user to upgrade the other hardware and software for compatibility. There may be legitimate reasons for this action, but the game just seems to be Ms.

  • Cannot start "Printer Assistant" Officejet Pro 8600

    The Printer Wizard and my 8600 worked well for over a year.  Now, I can't start "printer Assistant".  This may have been triggered by an 8.1 Win update.  Others on the Discussion Board have said to uninstall all programs, HP, reboot and then download the package "full of features" on the HP site.

    Everything I did.  Installation works very well.  Print, fax and scan all work very well during a test.  A shortcut has been installed on the desktop.  But I can't start the "printer Assistant", either in the upper part of the counter, the Start button, the program file.

    I used the Trouble Shooter to try to find the problem.  Since the troubleshooting I could open "Scan HP - HP Officejet Pro 8600".  From there, I could launch a successful analysis.  But the only way to this page that I found through the Trouble Shooter.

    The Printer Wizard is loaded on my computer: worm 28.0.1315.0 file; 5.16 MB. Last updated on 17/10/12.

    You have any ideas?

    Hi Sticks10,

    Thank you for your reply, I appreciate the clarification. I still think that the patch is a good idea to try.

    If it still does not respond, try the following in the following order:

    1. Uninstall the software. Uninstalling the printer software.
    2. Clean boot the computer. How to perform a boot in Windows.
    3. Disable all antivirus programs. Turn Windows Defender on or off. (This works in Windows 8.1).
    4. Disable the firewall. Turn Windows Firewall on or off. (This works in Windows 8.1).
    5. Create a new user account. Create a user account.
    6. Re-install the software using the printer HP install wizard for Windows.

    Hope this works for you and have a great day!

  • 8600 Officejet Pro 8600 no more stopped printing

    I have an Officejet Pro 8600 Plus 8600 that I installed on my home wireless router.  I use a Dell laptop with the Windows 7 operating system.  I have installed the printer without a problem when I bought it a month ago.  A few days ago, I tried to print a page before going to my work and could not operate.  I don't think much since I'm in a hurry, but later when I returned from work, that my printer was still not working.  I unplugged the printer and close the router and the laptop.  I rebooted everything and always the printer would not work.  No test page or anything.  I uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled and the Test of Fax report prints fine, but when I tried to run the printer test page, I got the error message "Unable to communicate with the printer."  I have worked on this for two days now and nothing I will work.  I used the doctor Print and evrything goes, but still no luck.  Help please?

    WEEL I finally thought to it.  My McAfee did an update that wiped out my ability to print.  I changed the settings for McAfee and I was able to print again.  Thanks for your help!

  • How to remove lid on OfficeJet Pro 8600 for the digitization of large images

    I'm an artist wanting to analyze some of my larger images.  This is not possible unless I can remove the cover (or it opens and go completely flat) on my OfficeJet Pro 8600.  Please tell me if this is possible and, if so, how.  Thank you!

    I want to change the value print factory set in the default print setting. I want the documents I send to the printer via AirPrint to print in black and white, not color. But the 8600 by default is always color. Sometimes, I am able to change this setting for individual tasks, but sometimes I can't. I wish that the default to be always in black and white. Is this possible?

    The steps above refer only to the Mac, indeed.

    AirPrint provides all color configurations, but only allow printing in color... all available Airprint parameters are listed in the What are the printing options are available? section below:

  • When you print envelopes Officejet Pro 8600

    I replaced my set two Officejet 7410 due to age, with the top two Officejet Pro 8600. Default tray position #1 (above) works fine and prints the paper standard and photographic paper nicely. Lac #2 (bottom) may receive envelopes #10.

    I use Win XP Pro service pack #3 and the suite MS Office (Word SP3) 2002. When I write a letter, it will be printed correctly in the default tray paper #1, Word allows you to go to the fall of the low 'TOOLS' to select "envelopes, their size, (#10), printing the job-oriented and if you want to add a postal bar code, and then you select the status bar (#2) and click on print.»

    This is the problem, it is unable to select a #2 tray package, even after you ask him to take the envelope tray #2 (low) instead, it takes the default bin #1 a page and print the address on this subject information!

    HP Tech support response was to "Exchange the trays' when printing envelopes! How lame is that? Over the years I owned the model 7410, I never been faced with this question...

    Before buying the 8600, I asked him at dealerships and even supported HP, if the 8600 worked similarly to my 7410 loving... The consensus was Yes.

    Which seems not to be true (at least for me). Please advise me how to solve this evolution very dissappointing. Thank you

    Hello: Unfortunately this model does not support the envelopes from the T2, you can change your settings and load the envelopes in the Tray1 and the Plains media on tray 2,

    Here is a link to the "user guide".
