Why do I get the error message: "The specified location does not contain information about your hardware." when trying to add the .inf setup driver?

The error message: "The specified location does not contain information about your hardware" appears when the Add Printer Wizard fails to install the selected .inf setup file, which can be due to an incorrect driver. Verify the driver from the manufacturer's website, keeping in mind that drivers may differ between 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows.

Some print drivers include several .inf files. If the first fails, direct the Add Printer Wizard to a different .inf file.
