    The printer installation failed error 0x00000643

    Hi,

    I have a wireless network & a wireless printer installed.
    The problem is with my laptop. The laptop can see the wireless printer but can not see it in the control panel. In process to add new printer I get an error message.
    "The printer installation failed. Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000643).

    Any help?

    Hey same thing happened with my network wireless printer.
    I go to add printer & choose the wireless network I got the same error message as you got.
    The Printer Installation failed. Operation could not be completed (0x00000643)
    I searched for the answer & on Microsoft site they say delete the wsd printer port & reinstall the printer. But this could not help me I got the same error. Now I am not able to use the printer due to this problem on wireless network.
    If anyone of you know the solution Please let us know.

    I suggest you to go to your printer manufacturers website & click on the support & tell them regarding your problem & the exact error code i.e. "The printer installation failed. Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000643)"
    They will definitely send you the link to fix the problem & I am sure they will definitely help you fix this problem

    I hope this helps you.

    Try these instructions:
    Install the printer with the appropriate drivers.
    Now under the Add printer & faxes window, delete the previously installed wireless printer.
    Reboot your system for 3-4 times
    Now install the wireless printer again with the original drivers.
    Turn your printer on & start your system.

    Try this:

    Open Computer Management console - Device Manager - WSD Print Provider
    Now right click 'WSD Print Device' & click uninstall.
    Now install printer normally using add printer wizard.
    Now installation will fail with same error message.
    Now In device manager - right click on the name of your computer & select scan for Hardware Changes.
    Now it will find the newly installed device & the printer will work properly.

    This will definitely work.

    I just want to say thank you to Vincenzo. Your clear and concise instructions worked perfectly, but I am puzzled as why I could install this same printer earlier without incident......Another mystery?!?

    Have to say, I was happy to join the board just to give thanks to Vincenzo. I was a bit discourage that after I did what was instructed, that it didn't work. But I did the steps a second time and it worked perfectly. Thanks again!

    Well, not a success for me. I have spent the last 40 minutes following Vincenzo's instructions to the letter (3 times) and my screen says 'cannot find software for the device'. So infuriating, since the software is right there..
