HP LaserJet P1102W printer not recognized as being connected

On Windows 7 I was installing my new HP LaserJet P1102W, and I completely ignored the initial setup instructions. Long story short, I’m waiting and wondering why the full software CD won’t recognize that the device is plugged in.

I had to turn off the printer, remove the device from the Devices and Printers applet, and then it was immediately recognized when the device was turned back on.
