    Adding a shared printer from Winserver2019 to Win7 PC


    Hi,

    If there is anyone who has founded a solution to this issue, please suggest a solution to try.

    Issue and background:
    We have several Win7 PC:s still on our organization and they work fine with WinServer2003 environment.
    But we also have WinServer2019 devices in use.

    Problem is that we have not founded a way to add a shared printers, that is installed on WinServer2019, to win7 PC.
    Im not opening the reasons why we need to this that way more than it is related to new ERP system deployment we have.
    I have managed to add this by using TCP/IP (IP-address) or to use WDS-port, but that is not the way we want to use this.

    So far I have tried:
    • To change create new regedit item (RpcAuthnLevelPrivacyEnabled) to client PC and Host (Winserver2109). Tried with both values on (1) and off (0)
      • And restarted print spooler
      • This worked other way round on Win10 and WinServer2003, but not with Win7 and WinServer2019

    • Modified GPO for print and point restrictions
    • Pushed a PS command on server which I founded but no success.


    All help is welcome here.

    Welcome to the forum. You dont say what errors you get but when you install a network printer it passes drivers to the pc so you need to have drivers for 7 it can also be down to what protocals your using

    Ill get 0x000001b and therefore tried those fixes listed above.

    And also the printer is added to WInServer2019 and I can install it to Win10 machine without any issues.
