Point and Print with Windows 7 RC1 in a domain

Postby guest » Mon Nov 23, 2009 10:46 am

I joined a machine to a 2008 domain and as the administrator I am able to use shared printers from our 32 bit 2003 print-server without problems. If a domain user with power-user rights on the w7 client logs on and wants to add the shared printer the UAC prompts and you have to sign on with an administrator account. This is not practicable. I already deactivated the point and print restrictions in the domain-GPO, without luck. Also lowering the UAC-Level to 3/4 didn't help.

What to do?

I've found a workaround for this issue. Win2003 Admin Template for Point and Print options for GP are set in User Policy. When I disjoined Win7 RC1 from the domain to investigate the Local Policy options, I noticed that Point and Print options were available via User AND Computer policy.

Import the below reg. entry using Group Policy Preferences.

---------

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Printers\PointAndPrint]
"InForest"=dword:00000000
"Restricted"=dword:00000000
"TrustedServers"=dword:00000000
