Download hp touchsmart drivers software suite application

October 4, 2010

I ran in to an issue where i needed to re-install the touchsmart software that came with my hp iq 506.  I ran in to an article where a person had the same issue for a later model of the touchsmart.  Here’s the solution (should work for any model). (note, a lot of this is taken verbatim from emmanuel’s blog, thank you emmanuel.. i am rewriting with updated instructions)
* Step 1 – Download the following files
* sp37504.exe – this is the original installation package for the HP TouchSmart software.  HP seems to have removed it from its support website, but some posted it here: (note: I don’t know how long this file will be available, but then again, the same could be said about any file from the HP website).
* sp44428.exe –

* Step 2 – Extract the files using WinRAR
* If you try to install the HP TouchSmart software on Windows 7 or other operating systems, the HP installer may give you the following message:

* * For this reason, you need to extract the installation files from the downloaded installer.  To extract the installation files, you can use any program that extracts .RAR files.  I suggest the excellent 7-Zip Portable from
* * Once you’ve extracted the files, you can now run the MSI installers.  On Windows 7, I found it was a bit different for each of the packages, so let’s do it (theoretically) one by one.
* Step 3 – install the packages above using the extracted installers
* Once you’ve extracted the sp37504.exe file, open windows explorer to \Source\hp\tmp\src.  For example, if I had used 7-Zip to extract sp37504.exe to the folder:

> *H:\Users\Public\Downloads\Hp\iQ804t\Vista64-Extracted\25-hp-touchsmart-software-sp37504\* I would (theoretically) navigate windows explorer to: 
> *H:\Users\Public\Downloads\Hp\iQ804t\Vista64-Extracted\25-hp-touchsmart-software-sp37504\**Source\hp\tmp\src***
> [<img src="" border="0" alt="image" width="602" height="283" />][4] You can then double click on the **SetupHPTouchSmart.msi file to start the installation.  Follow the prompts and once the installer is finished, you would theoretically now be able to run the HP TouchSmart software!** **Here's a theoretical Windows 7 start menu with an entry for the "HP TouchSmart" software.** 
> [<img src="" border="0" alt="image" width="321" height="516" />][5] Next, do the same and extract the installation files using 7-Zip for the two other packages: 
*   **sp40893.exe** - the HP TouchSmart Music/Photo/Video Application Update

> **Update**: if you have Windows 7 build 7000 or above, you can simply run hp\tmp\src\setup.exe
> [<img src="" border="0" alt="image" width="485" height="337" />][6]
*   **sp40894.exe** - the latest HP TouchSmart software update 
    *   Just like above, run the \src\src\**SetupHPTouchSmart.msi** file from wherever you extracted the contents of sp40894.exe After all packages are installed, here's what the "Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features" page would theoretically look like in Windows 7 Ultimate: 
[<img src="" border="0" alt="image" width="630" height="237" />][7] Notice the versions of the HP TouchSmart software components: and 2.5.2103 for the Music/Photo/Video update. You can (theoretically) install other updates from the HP support site in a similar way – for example sp40891.exe contains the “Calendar Update” and sp37392.exe contains drivers for the keyboard and ACPI.  Here’s the list of all of the updates I theoretically would have downloaded and extracted: 
> [<img title="image" src="" border="0" alt="image" width="616" height="453" />][8] *Theoretically you would create one folder per driver or application update found on the HP support site and then extract each update into each folder* Of course, these are theoretical tips – why would we want to re-install software we bought on the same machine HP sold us?
