Windows 7: Xerox Printers

28 Feb 2010   #1

7 Professional
Xerox Printers


We recently moved to Windows 7 Pro in our organisation. We are having issues with practically all Xerox printer drivers. I am able to deploy the printer drivers but the users are being prompted for admin rights when they try to print to these machines. I have tried giving the users the ability to install printer drivers and have had no luck with the point and print group policy options. The HP printers we have appear and do not prompt for admin rights, only the Xerox copiers do.

Does anyone have any advice?

We have similar issue , In our case the Xerox printer is asking for installation of update Xerox printer driver and user are prompted for admin user and password . When we update the driver and check the version it is same a old driver version.

We have tried the point and print group policy options ,but no success.

Any help is appreciate .

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

This is only a work around.

Run the printers etcetera in a dedicated virtual machine, ONLY for the printers etc, and give users all rights to the virtual machine. This effectively obviates any permission problems, and also does not require any complicated rights-juggling on your system.

The old drivers will then also work without any prompting.

Do laser printers have the same ink issues as inkjet printers?
I currently have an inkjet printer and although I am happy with the quality of the printing one thing really annoys me about it. I very hardly ever use my printer so the ink always drys and needs a deep clean before it will work again. This means that I can use my printers 4 times before I...
