    Cannot install HP 7660 printer driver


    Trying to install HP 7660 printer drivers in Windows 8 Pro 64 bit and the installation disc comes up with the error...

    "Administrator Rights: This system does not meet one or more of the minimum requriements needed to install this product. The installation cannot continue."

    So essentially it is saying that I do not have administrator rights. I am the sole user and administrator on my computer, but I also created an administrator account after encountering this problem, but the software still tells me I do not have administrator rights and cannot install the needed drivers.

    HELP! Thanks in advance...

    No worries. Fortunately, inkjet printers are cheap. It's the ink that costs you over time...
