Windows 8.1 Pro and hppiw.exe

I'm trying to install on my new PC (Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit) the drivers needed to use an Officejet Pro K850 printer installed on our LAN.
From HP website I downloaded hppiw.exe as suggested but I cannot make it run.
After double-click it starts to look for devices and then suddenly exits without any alert.
Windows Event Viewer shows 2 new entries:
Application error: 1000
Exeption code: 0xc0000005
Offset error 0x0000196b

My Lenovo laptop every day tells me it found a new printer (K850) but when I try to install it it says I don't have any driver for that.
Any hint to solve the problem?

Hi @Lucas-BS 
There is no full feature software and driver for Windows 8 let alone 8.1. You can try an in-OS driver. Please take a look at the instructions for Windows 8, they may help even though you have 8.1; Install a Windows 8 Driver with Windows Update.
I hope this helps.
If you still can not get the printer to work with your computer, I suggest calling us. we might be able to get you a discount on a newer model. If you are in Canada or US call 800 474 6836, or you can Contact HP Worldwide.

  • Windows - Excessive Disk Activity and "ccmexec.exe"

    ccmexec.exe is constantly rummaging through my hard drives, apparently looking for something. 
    It does not seem to be producing any kind of output file (at least none that I can find).
    I have created a batch file to turn off the SMS service, and kill ccmexec.exe, however this is not the best solution. 
    Since the SMS service allows corporate to keep my computer updated, I do not wish to turn it off permanently.
    Is there a way to find out more details on what the ccmexec.exe is looking for? 
    And what it does with the information it finds?
    Note: I already posted this on the regular forums, however the response suggested I re-post it to this one:

    We have the same problem with software inventory at my site.  The scheduled scan trashes my hard disk and brings my computer to a crawl every MWF morning.  You can check if software inventory is enabled by going to 'Control Panel -> Configuration
    Manager'.  Then, select the 'Components' tab and look for the status of 'Software Inventory Agent'.  If software inventory is enabled for your client, you probably do not have access to disable it.  However, you can configure software inventory
    to skip your hard drive by following instructions at
    Note that having the Software Inventory Agent enabled does not definitively mean your computer will be scanned for software.  Your IT shop must also instruct your client when and how to perform the scan.  However, your IT department probably has
    it enabled for a reason and it is likely to be part of the problem.
    Additionally, following the technet instructions will likely put your computer out of compliance with IT's standards.  You should only follow them if you are desperate and not worried about getting in trouble.

  • PC-based Windows 7 QuickTime Pro and time-lapse functionality

    I'm trying to create timelapses with Apple QuickTime. I managed to do this easily 2 years ago after I paid $30 to enable QuickTime Pro.
    However, currently by following exactly the same procedure (as below) it no longer works :
    QT File> Open Image Sequence > Select first image> Set frame rate > click Open
    I ensure there are no other files/folders present in the source folder.
    QT only creates a .MOV file containing the first image (I cannot enable a multiple file select).
    I have even tried this procedure on the exact same set of 9 x 700KB jpg photos, I used for the preliminary test 2 years ago. So now, 2 years later I want to compile them all for online publication...
    During my attempts to resolve this I uninstalled QT 7 and reinstalled the latest download from Apple [the About info gives: QuickTime Player (PRO in the logo) Version 7.7.3 (1680.64)]. I reused my old registration key, which enabled the initially greyed out menu options. But no luck, no timelapse...
    I see there are similar messages seeking support for this type of query, but they are quite old, or even unresolved. I do not have Snow Leopard or Lion.
    Hoping I can very soon continue to use this function otherwise I have wasted $30 and a lot of time.
    Thanks for your help. Cheers!

  • T440s Windows 8.1 Pro and USB 3.0 dock not recognisin​g DVI LCD panel

    Perhaps somebody could help me here.
    When I connect the USB 3.0 dock to my T440s, I then cannot get the second LCD monitor to be recognised by Windows via the USB3.0.
    The monitor is not being recognised as it is is not seen as one of the optional displays in the 'Intel HD Graphics control panel' window.
    The driver however for the second monitor is fully up to date and it works fine when I connect the LCD to the VGA port directly on my computer.  Also the second monitor is being recognised partly by the windows OS as it comes up as a second screen under the 'screen resolution' window.
    My set up is shown below.  I am thinking that perhaps there is an issue with either the NVIDIA or Intel HD graphics chip. I read somewhere that windows uses one or the other depending on the load.  I am worried that there is some problem with that mechanism.
    Can anyone help or give me some advice on this?  All driver are up to date.
    System Unit
    Nvidia GT730M Graphics without docking connector
    4th Gen Intel Core i7-4600U Processor (4MB Cache, up to 3.30GHz)

  • Clean installation of windows 8.1 pro on Thinkpad e550 activation problems.

    I have installed a SSD hard drive and need a clean instalations of windows for development using multiple platforms.
    My plan was to have a tri-boot on three partitions on a mbr formated drive.
    -Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit;
    -WIndows 8.1 Pro 32bit, and;
    -WIndows 7 Ultimate 64bit using downgrade rights.
    The following steps were used:
    1. Switching the hard drive and cloning the oem copy to the first partition;
    2. Activate windows getting the OEM key from the system (so I had no hardware changes);
    3.Use the anytime upgrade in the system properties to upgrade to pro;
    4.Clone the windows 7 OS from the old PC and place in on a partion;
    5.Download both install media for windows 8.1 Pro from MS Creating Install media;
    6. Create media as detailed here;
    7. Modify the install to allow entry of key after install as shown here because pro license and oem keys where not acepted during install;
    8.Went to BIOS. Turned on Legacy and disable secure boot;
    9.Install Windows 8.1 both versions, and;
    10. Repair boot to load all three OS.
    Good, Now I have all three OS installed all working. However, The pro product key will not activate the windows 8.1 pro and the oem key won't be acepted saying it is the wrong version of windows.
    So called MS activation line and they say i need to contact the OEM for activation and downgrade keys for 7 even though i paid for the upgrade through the MS store and the product was already activated once on the system.
    1. How can i activate the Windows 8.1 pro via Lenovo?
    2. How can I activate the Windows 7 copy under downgrade rights with Windows 8.1 pro?
    3. Am i missing something with the UEFI/BIOS? (Note:I need to use mbr not GPT format on the drive.)
    I have switch the UEFI mode/duel modes during install without success.

    "Is a Win 7 32 virtual client an option?"
    What VC are you using?
    I use VMWare Player (free) and use it to create virtual clients as needed.  Typically the virtual clients are "clean installs" from ISOs.  VMWare has it so well mechanized that there's not much to it.
    It's pretty quick and easy to install Player and give it a try.  Another advantage to that approach is that there's only a single OS at the top level and backups can capture the whole mess w/out having to deal with 2 or 3 different OSs and their partitions.

  • Install Windows 8.1 Pro on Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-591

    Hi forum, I recently bought the Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-591 and I noticed that it only comes with the Core Edition of Windows 8.1. As I need some of the features of the Windows 8.1 Pro Edition (joining domains, remote display etc.) I would like to upgrade the System to Windows 8.1 Pro. I still have an unused Pro retail key (no OEM, no Upgrade Pack) here so at the moment I'm downloading the ISO for Windows 8.1 Pro. But prior to installation I would like to make sure that everything works out fine and I don't run intro problems. First of all: is there anything I need to save from the old OS (except from the recovery partition- I already saved that to a USB drive using the recovery program provided by Acer)? Do I have to know my Product Key (using for example a key viewer software) just in case? Do I have to disable secure boot in BIOS? Second: can I just install Windows 8.1 Pro using my ISO and installing the drivers from the Acer support website? Drivers should still work, right? Third: if I ever want to switch back to Windows 8.1 Core (the OEM edition) do I just use the USB pen drive created with the acer recovery tool? Will my retail Windows 8.1 Pro Key be usable again if I switch back to the original OS? Sorry for asking that many questions but I just have to make sure that it runs trough right in the first place because I need the Laptop to function. What would be your standard procedure to this kind of "problem"? Thanks in advance and with regards,The_DJ  Edit:I might have forgotten to mention that I want to do a clean reinstall without all the bloatware from Acer. That's why I'm using the Windows 8.1 Pro "Vanilla" ISO and if I ever want to switch back to core use the Windows 8.1 Core "Vanilla" ISO. Is that possible or would I have to use the recovery partition saved to my USB drive?

     Changing the Operating System may cause driver conflicts. The compatible drivers for Windows 8.1 will not be available in the website for this laptop. Hence, some of the features on the laptop might not work after changing the OS.  1: Since you have already created the USB recovery media from the laptop, you do not have to copy anything else other than this.  Make sure you you backup all files before installing the OS, as it will remove all data from the laptop. I see that, you have the unused Pro retail key for the OS, hence, you do not have to have the OEM product key. You need to use the product key for Windows 8.1 Pro to activate it, not the Acer OEM product key.  In the BIOS, select BOOT tab.  Select BOOT MODE as Legacy Mode instead of UEFI.Disable Secure Boot. Under Boot Priority Order, you need to select 1 as CD/DVD (if you are using disc), or USB FDD or USB HDD (if you are using USB drive) to install Windows 8.1 Pro.  Then press the F10 key and select "Yes" to save the changes in BIOS.  ->You an install Windows 8.1 Pro using my ISO and installing the drivers from the Acer support website. As said before, there may driver conflicts.  -> If you want to switch back to Windows 8.1, you may use the USB reovery drive (which created you have created from the recovery partition). When you do this, the Windows 8.1 Pro and it's product key will be removed from the laptop and the factory shipped OS, drivers, apps (and the OEM product key) will be installed automatically. You do not have to use the Windows 8.1 Pro key with Acer OEM USB reovery media.  -> You need to do a clean install using the USB recovery drive to install factory shipped Windows on the laptop.  

  • Windows 8.1 Pro cannot log into RemoteApp running on Windows Server 2012 R2

    I have setup a vm running Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard and have enabled multiple RemoteApps.  Everything is setup correctly and I can use RD Web Access to access the portal and connect to the remoteapps from any computer except my own.  I am
    running Windows 8.1 Pro and when I log into the RD Web Access portal, click on one of the apps,  it looks like it's loading the session, but gets stuck on Preparing Windows.  Everything else up to that point looks like it loads correctly, (i.e. -
    Applying Group Policy Settings, applying desktop, etc...).  When I log into my Windows 7 dev machine, I can access and run everything just fine.  So there must be something between the Windows 8 and 2012 that isn't working quite right.  
    I have tried logging into the portal as myself and test users...same result.  
    any ideas?
    Jon Wooten

    i think there is something in your GPOs or collection settings causing an issue
    this happens with any remote app, built-in stuff like notepad or just third party apps?
    try not doing any kind of printer/device redirection from that host
    you can also do winlogon logging to get a better idea of what's going on during the logon operation
    you can also use the verbose logon messages GPO to get detailed login status info
    if all else fails I think you need to isolate it by creating a test collection and test user with the bare minimum options

  • Cannot login my Windows 8.1 Pro with my live ID, don't have the Microsoft Logon Option

    My laptop was installed with a Windows 8.1 Pro, and it worked very well before, i can login with my domain account and Windows Live ID, but today when i startup my laptop and i cannot find the option "Login with Microsoft/Live ID", i only can login
    with "Domain account/Local Account/SmartCard".
    Microsoft Account/Live ID is a local administrator but my domain account seems is not a local administrator.
    Now even i can login with my domain account, but i cannot change anything, because i'm not a administator, so how to make the "Microsoft Account" login available when i login the windows? (by the way, i cannot add a new login in the "Change
    PC Settings->Accounts", because my domain account is not a local administrator)

    Hi William,
    According to your description,I would like to know if you can see "Other User" option on the login screen.
    If you can see it,please click it and type your microsoft account.
    If you cannot see this option,please click Switch user to check the result.
    If the issue still persists, please upload the screenshot.

  • Bootcamp windows 8.0 pro installation issue with early 2015 Macbook Pro

    I am having this issue with installing Windows 8.0 pro (and 8.1 pro) on my early 2015 MacBook pro vs. Bootcamp. I have tried different method for  multiple times and all failed. Any help is appreciated.
    Hardware: (1) early 2015 MacBook Pro with 128GB (13 inches) , (2) Sony USB DVD burner. (3) Two 16 gb flash drive 2.0 version from two different manufactures
    Software: (1) 8.0 Pro ISO on flash drive from Microsoft (I have two copies) (2) 8.1 Pro downloaded from Microsoft website.
    Note -  I was able to download the bootcamp supporting files successfully and copy to a USB flash drive.
    Method 1 - Create the installation disk from ISO on flash drive and also tried copying ISO on hard drive (desktop)- failed.
    I have a 16 GB flash drive (2.0V) connected
    ISO is a valid 8.0 pro copy from Microsoft came on a flash drive.
    I have the windows 8.0 pro ISO on a flash drive and plugged in.
    Issue -  It gets to around 50% of "Copying Windows files..." and then doesn't go any further.  8 hours later, still stuck at around 50%.  I also tried to do the copy ISO from desktop. failed as well.
    Method 2 - I repeat the above steps with Windows 8.1 ISO downloaded Microsoft website - failed. Stuck at 50% copying windows file for 9 hours.
    Method 3 - I burned the Windows 8.0 pro ISO to a DVD and try to do the installation through a DVD instead.  DVD was successfully created.
    I was able to perform the partition.  When the computer reboots, it starts the window installation. However, it got stuck at 7% forever. I tried this multiple times and failed.
    Method 4 - I download a 8.1 Pro ISO from Microsoft website, I burned it to a DVD. Repeat method 3,  Again, windows installation stuck at 7%.
    Method 5 - I called Apple. - What they told me is pretty much repeat the above steps. Still failed.

    The ISO file(s) being downloaded seem to be corrupted. Can you use Microsoft FCIV tool - ?
    The DVDs should be burnt at the recommended rate for the physical media. DU should be used for burning the DVDs.

  • Windows 8.1 pro boot problems

    I upgraded my OS on a hp pavilion g6-1d73us from windows 7 home premium to windows 8.1 pro and ever since I have had boot problems. I took all the software off since I thought that might be the problem but the boot problems persist. The computer's self diagnosis helps but I still have problems. Is my laptop incompatible with windows 8.1? Windows 8.1 was a download and I still have recovery disks for windows 7. I originally thought the problem was incompatible software but now I am not sure.

    Hi @hifive11 ,
    Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I am glad you have recovery disks for windows 7, smart thinking. I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion g6-1d73us Notebook and having issues with the Windows upgrade to 8.1. Here is a link to the drivers page for your product. I do notice there are drivers for Windows 8.The Updates you need for the system are the Chipset. These are located on the driver page link above.
    One of the things that can cause an issue is things connected USB. The computer can not load the drivers so it causes an issue. Once the machine is up to date then return the USB devices.
    Then I recommended to restore the BIOS to factory defaults.Here is a link to restore the BIOS. 
    You can do a system restore. System restore will help if something automatically updated and did not go well on the Notebook.
    Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices.
    Hope this helps.

  • Windows 8.1 Pro x64 BSOD 0x9f DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

    I bought a new ASUS N76VZ about 2 weeks ago that came with Windows 8. I did a clean upgrade to windows 8.1 Pro and I proceed to install the drivers for the various utilities for the system. Shortly afterward, I repeatedly get this bugcheck stop error at
    least once a day.
    This is very annoying as I am a college student and it makes it difficult to to keep up if it throws this error when in class (which it has done so twice already). I proceeded to do some research into the cause of the error and i have found it comes back
    to a hardware compatibility issue (I assume, if not then your welcome to correct me).
    The following minidumps can be found at  If anyone could shed some light on the exact cause of the problem would be much appreciated. If the above minidumps do not have enough information to find the cause, let me know and
    i will get whatever is needed.

    Still blamed on the video driver and the video driver is the same date.  You need to find a drive (older) that will work.  I would also consider removing Symantec.
