Installing printer driver on a limited xp pro account

how can i let my limited account user install his printer on his laptop? i have tried granting right to this user on the "Load and Unload device drivers" but since he is not at least a power user, the installation didn't work. any workaround? tnx.

Hi third,

log on as an administrator to install the printer - or elevate the user for then install, then reduce their priviledges again

This PAQ has a possible solution with the policy - http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Q_21310243.html

can you access the laptop if need be?

this guy will be working remotely so the administrator option is not a solution.

ok then, is there a reason that he is a limited user on that laptop? or is it just because he has little priviledges on the network?

There is no way to install printer as limited user.

sorry LeeTutor

but i disagree with your recommendation

while being factually correct gianluigi's solution, was no solution at all - elevating the user or using an admin account was a solution, although not an accepted one

but hey, that is my opinion, whatever you believe to be best for EE will be fine.

just posting my objection :)
