    Whats the catch? There must be some hideous flaw that stops us using it

    Like using the printui function with per machine printers and it not always turing up and installing the drivers when you log in, but at other times working perfectly.

    We can always hope. I don't see why they missed it in the first place, printers take a disproportionate amount of my time :P

    My fave is when you install a printer (and in particular HP printers) and it defaults to letter..always, until you hunt down the hidden setting which is miles away from the rest of the printer settings.

    OK, here goes. Go to your printer properties (I'm doing this on a HP 4050) and click on device settings, you will seee the paper sizes listed. Now go back to general and printing preferences - papaer quality - advanced and et voila, a completely different set of paper preferances and sizes!!

    It probably won't run all this 'high tech educational software' we insist on using

    Re: Printers.

    I'm going to install it just for that reason!

    I hate it when teachers have spent hundreds of pounds on software that is too old and pants to even grace the cover of a magazine, then ask me to install it on 75 machines before the end of the day, because they can't teach without it!

    Oh the joy to dump 16bit software!

    You can push printers in the R2 release of Server 2003, it works very very well in my testing of it.
