Installing HP Photosmart 7520 all in one printer software

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
My new HP Photosmart 7520 will not install on my Dell PC.  I have the 32-bit Windows Vista OS.  When installation begins I immediately get the error message: "Key not valid for use in specified state".  I've tried installing the CD and the software from HP on-line, all several different ways.  I 've used the troubleshooting download from HP but both methods do not solve the installation problem.  I've temporarily disabled the firewall.  I've done disk clean-up and defragmenting.  I've restarted the PC more than a dozen times during my efforts.  Even Microsoft Windows can't install all the software from updates - only the fax portion.  If I can get past the point where the error message occurs I think the software will install.
I hesitate to try the Geek Squad.  My experience with them is that most of the geeks aren't competent and it's a crap shoot getting assigned one that is.  They will be my last resort.
Has anyone had this problem?  Does anyone have a solution?

Hey @jimlg ,
Welcome to the HP Forums!
I understand you're unable to install the printer drivers for your Photosmart 7520 printer.
The error you have listed is a Windows error and not attributed to the printer software. You can confirm this with the fact the error occurs when trying to install from Windows update bypassing our installer.
You may want to try following the suggestion in this thread made by @Gemini02 which seems to help resolve the issue for some users experiencing the same problem: Re: key not valid for use in specified state.
Let me know if that helps.
