Hello,  I have a windows xp laptop that will not apply a local policy to allow users to add drivers so they may add their own printer.  I have had ths work on other systems but a specific laptop is not working.   Of course when I log in as administrator i have the access but not as the user.

I even removed all users, including the administrator, for this local policy and it did take away that permission.  After adding the users back and even a specific user id, I cannot get the policy to apply when logged in as the user.

Any thoughts?

Is there a more restrictive Group Policy that is overriding the local policy? Can you run an RSoP and see if anything is applying this setting besides the local policy?

Also run a gpresult on the local machine and see if the local policy was applied. If it isn't then it should list the reason why (but the why might not be super helpful).

removed the system from the domain and added back and it worked fine.  Thanks, sorry for the delay of following up.
