Windows 7: Win7 machine + network printers

Win7 machine + network printers


Last couple of moths we are migrating machines to Windows 7. And the tendency of our company is to put all printers on network (server 2003). But something happens when we install new network printer. After installing new network printer, all the machines on Windows 7 suddenly have lost connection to the all of the printers they have been connected to previously. And our policy is that users have no installing rights and we tend to keep that. Only solution is to go to the user and log on as admin and connect printer again. Did anybody had similar problems and has a solution or knows whats the problem. Thanks

Yes we did. Sorry to say the solution was to install a new Print Server on Windows Server 2008 R2. All Windows 7 machines and XP machines have no issues with printers or them sticking.

I hope you find another solution. I will keep reviewing this Thread. -WS
