I currently have a 2008 AD environment with Windows XP and Windows 7 64 bit clients as domain members. I'm attempting to install printers on the Windows 7 64 bit clients for restricted user accounts in a way that the printer install is based on the clients hostname. Below is an insert of line I use:
9 rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /y /q /in /n"\\print_server\KYOCERA_
Basically, I determine which printer the clients computer will connect to based on the first 6 characters of the clients hostname. For some printers, Windows requires additional drivers and returns a prompt to install them. This fails for restricted accounts on Windows 7 except when the policies:
User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Control Panel/Printers > Point and Print Restrictions
Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Printers > Point and Print Restrictions
are disabled. The User Configuration section on the DC exists however the Computer Configuration part does not. As a temporary workaround, I manually changed this on the Windows 7 client but will prefer to do so on the DC.
Microsoft documentation (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=18c90c80-8b0a-4906-a4f5-ff24cc2030fb&displaylang=en
) advises that the Computer Config portion exists in the printing.admx files however the GPMC is not showing those files even though they exist on the server.
Is it normal with windows 2008 SP2 std server to not recognize admx files (if no). what additional changes are required to have admx files work?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
