    Just a quick heads up for those members having trouble using a RISO on a 64 bit Vista / 7. Drivers are now available for download.

    Good man!! I cannot fathom WHY the drivers are on their site like this. Maybe we could host our own dedicated RISO drivers page with big pictures and one click downloads! J x Thanks for finding this.

    Funnily enough Riso called yesterday and i mentioned how finding drivers on their site was difficult. She said the website had been updated and was brand new now, so the drivers are easy to find...i think she was telling porky pies.

    For any poor unfortunate that is trying to get these printers working shared out from a 64 bit server, here is the solution.


    Printing via spooling from a 32bit client via a RISO printer shared out from a 64 bit server will fail as the drivers are not Microsoft approved and that’s for a reason – they are rubbish!
    It fails because the driver tells the 32bit client to try read from the HKey User SID TMP variable which will not exist if the user never logged directly into the server desktop.

    The solution is as follows:

    Get the 64bit and 32bit drivers from the Riso FTP. At time of writing, the driver pack is “CD233 PS7R9000G1 PS7R9000 G1” (this pack works for any RISO PS7R printer, including the HC5000).
    Install printer on the 64 bit main server, share it out and add additional drivers, feeding it in the 32 bit drivers. All standard Windows print server stuff so far.
    However, you will see that XP clients fail to print via this shared printer – if you use the process monitor to look at the spoolsvc.exe you will see why…. Note to the RISO driver team: what were you thinking!

    Solution:
    Log into the 64bit Printer server

    Open regedit
    Give Everyone full control to HKU/.DEFAULT

    Create the following keys:
    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\Explorer\SessionInfo\-1\KnownFolders]
    "{F1B32785-6FBA-4FCF-9D55-7B8E7F157091}"="C:\\temp"

    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Printers\Connections]

    Give Everyone Modify NTFS perms to the C:\temp folder.


    Now, restart the spooler service and you will see XP clients will print fine using the C:\Temp folder on the server to write the Riso temp files created during printing.


    Hope those steps help someone
