Windows 7 Printers issue - cannot connect to the printer. Access is denied
We're testing out the new server 2008 r2 with win 7 combination and so far everything is working fine. We have now come to test the printer sharing side of things and we hit a stumbling block. Basically we got a shared printer on the server (also a dc) with both the windows 7 32bit driver and 64bit driver from the manufacturer.
When the standard users are allocated to the shared printer it doen't work and gives the error:
winodws cannot connect to the printer. access is denied. I've been looking through various threads on the forums on the net but so far nothing has worked. So far we have tried:
on computer GPO we have the Point and print restrictions set to disabled
on the Computer GPO we also have disabled the "Prevent users to install printer drivers"
on computer gpo we have set also set "allow non-administrators to install drivers for these device setup classes" and have added in the Printers GUIDS
but it still does not work.
If i login an admin and add a printer its working fine which makes me thing its got the be the correct drivers and probably some permissions but just haven't been able to nail it down.
