    Interesting that the later versions of PMP still have the same quirk that I am also experiencing on v5, which also occasionally throws a funny and doesn't update properly.

    Latest one was increasing the kids print quota by £253.15 when it was supposed to add £2.50... quite why it decided on exactly £253.15 I don't know, but I have had to resort to updating groups manually just to be sure.

    Only other remarks for anybody thinking about PMP, messenger service needs to be on for clients to pick up quota warnings, and v5 doesn't like HP3600 printers and cannot apply settings to them. Presumably the later versions have fixed this.

    No it doesn't. There is a client that can be installed on clients which provides the same functionality, and allows for users to mouse-over the icon and check their balance.

    If so, then yeh we use it for all the staff.. they can hover over it an get the info or double click on it... very useful and they don't keep asking me how much credit they have left
    Has anyone got the client software in an MSI form so that I can do a silent install of it.

    True, but that's user initiated. If the messenger service isn't running on the workstation, it won't pick up automated messages from the print server.
