HP Printer Installer Weirdness

I know there’s no shortage of bad or weird error dialogs for software these days, but I’m still surprised when I encounter one in real life. Tonight I had to use my daughter’s HP Photosmart printer on our main Windows PC, so we dutifully installed the CD first to pick up all the appropriate drivers. Sure enough, about half way through a maze of several different installation wizards, this beauty showed up, trying to warn us of “issues blocking installation”. Luckily, it seemed to be a red herring, because clicking Continue let the wizard(s) finish, then we were up and running!
