Just want a confirmation from experts.  Users don't have admin right, but we have been ask to find a solution for them in order to "load and mount" usb devices (mainly printers) on their own without our help.

I always tough that when connecting a local printer, windows XP was creating the usb port after the hardware detection and to go through that process, admin rights are required... but...

Is there a script that exist that would allow the regular user  (no admin rights on computer) to plug his printer on any usb port and execute a script that would detect and create the usb port for his printer if the printer driver is already install on his computer?

(we can always create a package that would install it and push on the desktop the script to execute after)

Thanks for your expertise...
