Updating network printer Cybersex free date no credit card
Some installation wizards first remove the old drivers and then install the latest, while some simply install the drivers over the old ones.
When doing 32 bit Windows XP to 64 Bit Windows 7 migration, USMT is migrating all the network printers, which is great.
if the XP driver is at version 1.0, and the Win 7 driver is at 1.0, then running Update driver will not do anything because the versions will be the same).
Each time Xerox release a new printer driver and we update our network printers on our servers we have to go around each domain computer and enter the Administrator details in to the update printer driver prompt. We now have 300 domain computers so this is becoming unrealistic.
As the drivers are obviously not correct though, the driver needs to be manually upgraded (right click printer -- Update Driver).
Is there a WMI function or Powershell cmdlet for this action? As our USMT task sequence is separate from the deployment and runs under the migrated user's context I'm sure it would work.
(Rather than waiting for the client to connect to the print server and get prompted to update to the newer drivers.)N00b, why bother?
Windows 7 uses drivers to communicate to various hardware devices connected to your computer, including printers and scanners.
Printer manufacturers provide drivers with their products, but also update older drivers to optimize them and add new features.
My guess would be that's why you can't update the drivers on most workstations, and "some" of the workstations aren't getting the new GPO applied - those ones are the one on which you can edit the settings/update the drivers.
Correct it by correcting your GPO, rather than screwing around on each individual machine...
