Install problems



I have had a HP1400 all in one printer on my PC for a long time. For some reason I have lost the Twain ability so decided to just remove it and do a reinstall from original disc. The install starts and then gives me a message that it cannot be installed and I have to log in as Administrator. I am the only user and am designated Administrator. I am confused.confused2

What OS?

It might pay you to get this:

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/add-take-ownership-to-explorer-right-click-menu-in-vista

Right-click on the drive, in "My computer" and select "Take ownership".

If that dioesn't work, due to the CD being write-protected, try copying the files to a new directory, on your HD, then take ownership of that directory, before going for the install.

If you uninstall it, from Device Manager, then reboot, it should reinstall it, though.
