I am running Windows 7 and I am having tons of issues with my printer because the point and print restrictions are enabled. Few months ago, I had the same problem but I happened to resolved the issue by disabling the restrictions on my Server 2008 R2. But I am currently under Server 2008 and the option to disable the feature are not available. There are some settings for point and print but no option to disable and I could not even install printers on the client PC. How can I amputate the restrictions? Can someone help? Thank you.
Remove Point and Print Restrictions in Windows 7
Hi you are asking on how to disable the point and print on your windows 7
Enable the Point and Print Policy such that only Admin install the print drivers as well as force Admin prompts for driver update. Add the print drivers onto the TS server. Let the clients create the connections.
And if you are using two or more machine/printer. Try this one, test print server (do not perform this task from the TS server since the driver is required and since you are Admin on both machines you will install the driver) change the driver of one of the printer drivers. The User accounts should get prompted for the driver the next time they attempt a print job. The first time an admin prints and sucks down the driver, the Users will no longer be prompted for the driver.
Will the users be adding any local printers; you can set a policy where users cannot launch Add Printer.
Follow this step to manage fixing it.
User / Admin Templates / Control Panel / Printers / Prevent addition of printers
Hope this will help you. Matt Tiger.
