Running windows 98se. Get error message when trying to load drivers for hp970cxi printer saying insufficient hard drive space, even tho' there is 15GB available !
Tried removing all references to HP in registry and running the patch, but still no luck.
Other programmes load with no problem .

Sadly even tho' the usb installation was followed to the letter, I still get the error message about insufficient hard drive space on the startup screen !

Tried all these !
The error message when attempting to load drivers suggests that there is insufficient room in the folder it is copying to - which is it?
There is certainly more than enough room on the c:/ drive around 15GB

HP say you need 50 megabytes (MB} to load the drivers seems that must use a lot of room to unpack etc.

Does it unpack to temp? - 50mb is nothing to the hard drive space available, however it may be a lot to an individual folder ! - but which?

Still gives me the error screen at next load saying insufficient hard drive space. Even done a reload of win 98, still no joy !

Just a thought / chance .... Empty the temp folder(s) on your PC

C:\Temp

C:\Windows\Temp
