Users not able to install network printer on Windows 7
Posted on 2012-09-20
I recently built a new Server 2008 R2 to be used as a 64-bit Print Server fro Windows 7 64-bit clients. When a user tries to add a HP printer from the server all works fine, however when they try to add a all-in-one Printer like Canon or Sharp, they get a message that Unable to install Printer driver. All works fine if we use an account that has elevated privileges like local admin.
So why is HP printers getting installed with no issues but not the big machines like canon or sharp?
