Allow Standard Users to Install Drivers For HP3550n
I am going through the process of upgrading the drivers on our Printer server which is Windows Server 2003.
One of our printers is the HP3550N.
According to their website there are no windows 7 drivers
I have installed the printer on the server using the 2003 drivers and it prints fine.
I have (from a windows 7 64 bit client) connected to the server share for the printer and installed it using the VISTA 64bit drivers - which again seemed to work.
On the server I have ensured the x64 drivers are there.
When I logon to a windows 7 (32bit) client as a teacher or student, that prints to this printer I get the pop-up box as attached.
If I clear the box I can still successfully print !
How can I prevent the box appearing?
Will this help?
Allow Standard Users to Install Drivers For Devices from Specified Setup Classes
Many thanks for any suggestions..

No one ever seen anything similar?

Have you tried the universal drivers? We have a couple of these and work a treat with that driver.

Unfortunately this model does not seem to support the UPD

how have you got point and print setup?
on a group policy
computer config\admin templates\printers\point and print restrictions
i set it enabled then tixk users can only print to machines in their forest
both of the security prompt boxes to
do not show warning or elevation prompt

I agree (as above) it'll be point and print restrictions.

I ran a group policy results on an affected machine with a test user account:
The results are:
Point and Print Restrictions
7-Printers Computer Policy
From the help it says:
When the policy setting is disabled:
-Windows Vista client computers can create a printer connection to any server using Point and Print.
-Windows Vista computers will not show a warning or an elevated command prompt when users create a printer connection to any server using Point and Print.
-Windows Vista computers will not show a warning or an elevated command prompt when an existing printer connection driver needs to be updated.
-Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP client computers can create a printer connection to any server using Point and Print.
-The "Users can only point and print to computers in their forest" setting applies only to Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP SP1 (and later service packs).
So that looks right to me.....

Going to re-image the PC with Windows 7 64 bit just to see what happens....

- Rep Power
We had this same issue - users don't have install permissions, and thus can't install the printer drivers. Point and print was the fix for us...

I once came across something similar to this and my fix was these two polices:
Computer Configuration> Policies> Administrative Templates> Point and Print Restrictions
User Configuration> Policies> Administrative Templates> Control Panel> Printers> Point and Print Restrictions

I have these policies:
User Config -> Policies -> Admin Templates -> Control Panel/Printers
Browse the network to find printers
Prevent addition of printers
Prevent deletion of printers
But they don't seem to affect any other printer connects at logon - just this 3550
I personally think there must be something very non-standard about this driver

The windows 7 64bit client does not produce the error.....

Do the same GPO tweaks under Computer Config.

I've tracked this down to the MOUSE!!!!!!!!
If I reboot and logon as a student with the mouse OUT - no message.
If I reboot and logon as a student with the mouse IN - I get the message as per my initial post...
Any ideas before I start trawling through which of my policies might be causing this?
