Windows 8 HP printer no install option – Troubleshoot compatibility

I tried to install my HP printer and the installation screen had no install button:

So I tried the compatibility tool that comes with Windows 8, right click the installation file and select Troubleshoot compatibility:

This then opens the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter:

I then clicked Troubleshoot Program:

And of course this worked before, so I selected that option

It was Windows 7, so I selected that option

Then the Start program button to see it work!

Of course there is no guarantee it will work, but this is a step in the right direction.
