Win 7 print driver issue for standard users
Posted on 2011-09-18
I have a 2003 server that hosts all my network printers in a domain.
The users in my domain are standard users and have a mandatory profile. My environment consists of xp machines as well as win 7 machines.
XP machines works fine and no issues with printing, the issue is when users use win 7 machines. The machines don't have the printers installed when users with mandatory profiles log in although I did install the drivers when logged in as admin.
When users log in with standard mandatory profile, they dont see the printers and have to install the drivers from 2003 server. Sometimes it works and other times it doesnt install and hence cant print.
I would like to make it work so that all users whether it be standard or admin be able to use the printers irrespective of whether they use XP or win 7.
Any ideas to fix this?
