Printer installation failed. Error 0x00000490
I had a strange error today when I tried to install a new Ricoh Multi-Functional printer on Windows 2008 R2 Server x64.
Printer was installed by selecting the
Add a TCP/IP or Web Services Printer by IP address or hostname radio button
Type of device: Autodetect
With this setup I have received the following error message:
Printer installation failed. Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000490)
The problem was located in the wrong Model type in the last page of Network Printer Installation Wizard since I was not asked to provide drivers for this printer.
I have solved this by selecting the Add a TCP/IP or Web Services Printer by IP address or hostname radio button
Type of device: TCP/IP
Now I was able to add drivers for this device and everything went well although using Type of device: Autodetect option usually works well, especially with HP printers.
