I am having a problem configuring the new computers at my workplace which are running on Windows 7 Pro x64. I would like to have these connect to the print server using the pushprinterconnections.exe, with the printers mapped through group policy. Adding the 64-bit driver for the Xerox phase did not help.
The other PCs running on WinXP x32 do not have the same problems and are functioning well. I am wondering if I have to create a new printer and also an AD container and policy in the Print Management. Clearly I am missing something. Hope you can help.
Problem in Configuring Print Server for Win7 Pro x64
Perform the following steps in your computer.
Go to Print management of your computer.
On the left side click on the print servers. Go to applicable print server. In it, click printers.
At the center right click on the applicable printer and after that just click on the deploy with group policy.
In the same dialog box, browser and select to create a new GPO for the connections of the printers. Apply it by clicking ok.
If you want all users to access the printer, select the per machine option in the GPO
I you want groups to access printer so that each group access 1 time only then select the per user option. User here is a group.
That is how you map the printer again according to your needs. If it still gets the problem then it is time to degrade to 32bit windows.
