    Exclamation Trusted Printer Settings

    Good Morning,

    Please can someone post the required settings to place into a group policy? It seems to have changed in Server 2012, there are no point and print options anymore which is how i got printers working in my last school! This annoying pop-up comes up at the moment for standard users:

    Anyone?

    This is causing a bit of a nightmare at the moment. Users are getting the pop-up above and can't install printers as they are not an administrator or this error when trying to add / remove printers. It worked perfectly in my last school on Server 2008 when point and print policies were available.

    Strange, on my Server 2012 box the normal settings work. (See image).

    You seem to have them as a user Configuration AND Computer Configuration? This could be why mines not working, i've only set it on User Configuration but i can't find Point and Print Restrictions in COMPUTER > POLICIES > ADMIN TEMPLATES > PRINTERS

    I am no longer getting the first pop-up logged on as a standard user, but im still getting this one

    The GPO is applied at the domain root BTW.

    Still having terrible problems with this, it won't even let administrators add / remove printers.

    I have started adding printers via GPO to get us by, however a lot of them say 'Driver Update Needed' when allocating out via policy.

    All sorted.

    Had to delete the 'copy files' registry entry for every printer, then it started working as expected. The reason for this was our new Windows 7 build is 64bit and the old was XP 32bit and registry keys still pointing to 32 bit drivers.

    Many thanks
