We have some 64 bit Win7 machines now and our print server is 2003. We dont have the printers mapped automatically at logon, we let the pupils add the printers manually. Our problem is that everytime a student add's a printer it is requiring administrator logins to install. This is everytime a pupil logs onto a new machine.
I have looked around and found a thread on these boards which talks about some GP settings;
User Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> Printers : Point and Print Restrictions
Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Printers : Point and Print Restrictions
but these are for 2008 not 2003 so i wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction?
In 2003 there is an option for point and print in;
User config -> admin templates -> control panel -> printers -> point and print restrictions
I am a little bit lost and a day of googling hasnt really produced too many worth while answers......
Thanks a lot for any help you might be able to offer.
edit: quick edit to say i have all the 64 bit drivers we need installed as additional drivers on the 2003 print server, the printing works fine once an administrator has put in the details to allow the driver to install. I know that the reason the driver doesnt automatically install is due to group policy settings restricting pupils from installing any software but without turning this off (which isnt really an option) is there a way around this?
