Robert Preston :

There is a known bug on HP Solution Center. In this post I will possible solution on this particular issue. ERROR MESSAGE:

HP CUE Scanning Flow Component has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

CAUSE: Bad registry enrty – caused by some third party application such as registry cleaners or anti-virus. For some reason the registry below is created which then cause the scanning application to HPQSCNVW.exe to stop working.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Hewlett-Packard\DigitalImaging Key = ProfileWritePath Value = %APPDATA%\HP\Digital Imaging\Data\Destination

SOLUTION: First, you must recreate the original HP registry entry if it is missing. Go to your Registry Editor by clicking on Run and typing Regedit. In the registry go to:


- You must edit or if it is missing you must create a new key (String Value) and name it ProfileWritePath. – set the value of this new key to:

%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\HP\Digital Imaging\Data\Destination

By doing this each user that logs in to their personal account will now have a valid registry entry and will now cause the registry cleaner to see that the HP registry entry is pointing to a valid path, and will not remove the HP registry entry.
