Wont Install on Windows XP

Postby chris.young » Fri Nov 06, 2009 11:35 pm

I'm having an issue during the installation of BullZip. When i run the install it downloads and installs ghostsript just fine. But after that the installer asks for HP_CLJ1.PPD, I found the file that i needed via the adobe site where you can get the Apple Color Laser Writer file. I installed the HP PPD file pack to my C:drive where It dumps the files. When it asks for the .PPD file I locate it on my C:drive it sees it and continues on, but then asks for HPCLJ.ICM ???? I have scoured the internet for this can't find it for the life of me. I do know that the .ICM is Image Color Matching but that doesn't help me if I don't have the file..

Things I've tried:
Installed a couple different printers
Installed Adobe Photscript
Installed HP Color Laser Writer for Apples and HP's
Not pulling my hair out!! LOL

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I did the following thing to correct this.:

1 - install any HP color printer.
2 - go to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\color\"
3- in my case, the file installed is "HP PS C3100_C4100-Premium Paper(tricolor+photo).icc"
4 - make a copy of this: "Copy of HP PS C3100_C4100-Premium Paper(tricolor+photo).icc"
5- rename this as "HPCLJ.ICM"
6- select it during the driver installation.

My problem was solved.

Did you use nLite or similar programs to customize your WinXP installation?
Original I386\Drivers.cab contains all files you need. Take "virgin" Windows XP installation, unpack Drivers.cab to some temp folder (C:\_Drv for example) and use this folder during driver installation.
Good luck!

or in my case rename the icc file, but don't add the .ICM extension

This was on an old laptop running Windows XP SP3 for a friend who could not get Bullzip to install !
