I'm setting up the software library to allow users to install printers. The point and print restrictions in windows is stopping the installation of the drivers without admin credentials. I'm looking for ideas of how to deal with this other than GPO and turning off point and print restrictions.
Thanks a bunch.
Answer Summary:
Change point and print restrictions via regedit script, rather then GPO.

Most group policies are just registry settings. We use group policy to push out the point and print restrictions and I pasted the registry settings that are on my machine as a result of that policy. You could push these settings through a KACE script or some other method.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Printers\PointAndPrint]

  • Thanks a bunch. If I do it with a kscript then I won't need to worry about GPO? If I'm understanding this correctly.
  • Thanks again..That worked perfectly.
