I am using Windows 7 and trying to install an HP pcs 1350 all in one printer. When it runs the setup from the disk the requirement results stops and says administrator rights.
Is it 32 or 64bit windows 7? If your not sure click on start and then right click on computer and click on properties. It will say which you have in the window that comes up.

64 bit
Ok this machine on windows 7 64bit does not install with the CD.
You need to use windows update after connecting the usb cable to the computer to install it.
  1. Make sure that the USB cable is not connected to the product. If the USB cable is connected to the product, disconnect it.
  2. From the Windows taskbar, click the Windows icon ( ), and then click Devices and Printers . The Devices and Printers window opens.
  3. Click Add a printer . The Add Printer window opens.
  4. Click Add a local printer .
  5. Click Use an existing port .
  6. Click the Use an existing port drop-down list, select USB0001: (virtual Printer Port) , and then click Next .
  7. Click the Windows Update button and wait for the updates to complete.
  8. In the Install the printer driver window, under Manufacturer click HP , and then search for your driver under Printers . If the driver does not show up under HP, try looking under Hewlett Packard.
    NOTE: The print drivers are displayed by their series names, which means the last one or two numbers may show as zeroes. For instance, the HP Photosmart 8750 displays as HP Photosmart 8700, and the PSC 1350 displays as the PSC 1300 series.
  9. Once you find the appropriate driver, plug the USB cable back into the printer.
  10. The Installing Device Driver Software window should briefly display in the bottom right corner of the computer screen. Wait for it to disappear.
  11. Click the Cancel button on the Add Printer window.
  12. The newly installed printer now shows in the Devices and Printers window.

there is no ubs001 virtual printer port and my printer does not show up in the list.
You have to use windows update before it will and it will show up as psc 1300 series.
Instead of using USB00001 then use LPT1
Then Click the Windows Update button and wait for the updates to complete.
