Non local admins installing printers

I set up a group policy following this guide here https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753269.aspx#BKMK_DeployPrinterConnections but I get an access denied when attempting to install a networked printer from the print serve and I am unsure why. My workstation test is a windows 7 x64. My DCs are mix windows 2003 and windows 2008. Print server is windows 2008. Installation works if you have local admin rights.

You disabled point and print restrictions in the group policy correct?

The  Point and Print Restrictions setting? No I did not find this in computer settings despite the documentation saying otherwise. I did find it in users though. And yes the computer has been restart.

I do have RSAT installed but I still dont see that policy. It says my admin templates are retrieved from the central store. I seem to recall dumping (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=6243) that folder PolicyDefinitions in sysvol\domain\policies

Not anymore. We used to a couple years ago. Recently we just got 2008 DCs and one year ago we finally upgraded the entire company to Windows 7. Only a handful of XP machines exist for legacy software.  I will download these to the store and go from there. Check back tomorrow, thanks
