Deploying printers using GPP

Posted by bartvdw on 1111/0606/2011

When you deploy printers using GPP, you can receive following error:

‘0x80070bcb The specified printer driver was not found on the system and needs to be downloaded.’

To prevent this, add following options in your policy:
– Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Printers\Point and Print Restrictions – set to "Disabled"
– User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Printers\point and Print Restrictions – set to "Disabled"

    This needs to be done from a Windows 7 workstation or an 2008 R2 since the computer config option did not exist until R2 and Win7.
