Internet Printing Server 2008 R2

Posted on 2011-04-21

I am in the process of migrating to Windows 2008 R2. I have one up and running and have printers installed. Previously in Windows 2003 I had Internet Printing setup, IIS installed and I was able to manipulate the ipp_0001.asp file located under C:\windows\Web\Printers

However, 2008 R2 has completely locked down the Windows directory to where even Administrators cannot make changes. I find this absurd but has anyone found a workaround. The changes to this file are custom to my environment.

Inter Printing is technically up and running under http://localhost/Printers/ but it is the built in generic interface.

Any way to work around this or manipulate this file?

    Accepted Solution

    Solved! Take ownership of the file and then you can make changes to the file.
