hello i have a problem with my drivers, any of them wont install, they just come with an ERROR

"An error occurred while loading the archive (null) "

"then i open command line output"
/home/michael/skrivebord/svs setup/ SP39403/setup.exe
End-of-central-directory sagnature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last disk's of this archive.

setup.exe may be a plain executable, not an archive
Note: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /home/michael/skrivebord/svs setup/ SP39403/setup.exe or
/home/michael/skrivebord/svs setup/ SP39403/setup.exe.zip, and cannot find /home/michael/skrivebord/svs setup/ SP39403/setup.exe.ZIP, period.

You seem to be trying to install a windows driver, setup.exe, in Ubuntu 8.10. Obviously, that doesn't work.

You've been told that these are HP-provided self-extracting archives used to update a Vista machine with HP-provided patches.

They will NOT run in Linux.

Please stop posting this over and over!!
