Automatically Installed Printer - Unable to Print or Manage Printer
I've got a printer that is being automatically installed by the System account. For some reason whenever I try to print to it using a user account it shows the Status as 'Needs troubleshooting'. The security for it has Everyone with permission to print.
If I add the user account to the administrator group or add security permissions to the user account to be able to 'Manage this printer' and 'Manage documents' I can print fine. Leaving the user account as an administrator is not an option. Is there a way to script adding the security permissions?
I took a registry snapshot before and after changing the permissions and found the (looong) string of hex in the Security key for the printer, but changing that wouldn't be a very elegant solution (if it would even work).
Thanks for any suggestions.
