Allow non-Admins install third party print drivers
Posted on 2012-09-12
My users who are NOT local administrators cannot install printers shared from my printserver if the printer uses a third party driver on their local computers.
No RDP or Citrix here!
I have enabled the GP to allow NON-Admin users to install printers. This works!
How ever, If the shared printer uses a third party print driver an error is received and the user cannot install that printer.
How can I get around this?
I have downloaded ALL the printer drivers DIRECTLY from the manufacture's websites, so I'm not quite sure why there are third party drivers in use.
I would just like to allow non-admins permission to install printers with third party drivers..
