How do I add Windows 8 printer drivers to Netware 6.5?

iManger does not seem to work on IE10 and the drivers must be added from a Windows 8 system.

Any suggestions on how to solve the issue?

I'm not sure if this will be supported on NetWare. Looking at the patches for the server bit, Mac 10.8 support was added last in august 2012.

Are you running the latest iPrint client (5.78 at time of writing) on the Windows 8 system?
Also, are you running Windows in desktop mode with the Oracle Java installed and the iManager url added to the trusted sites of IE?

If iPrint on Windows 8 pushes Windows 7 printer drivers to the desktop... it might work. Haven't tested it though.

Cheers,
Willem

Found it on the latest iPrint client download page:


Requirements unique to Windows 8:
The iPrint Client installed to Windows 8 will print to Print Managers hosted on OES2 SP3, OES11, and OES11 SP1 if the required software is installed. See TID 7011315 to learn how to obtain the required software. There are no plans to provide needed server side software to cause iPrint on Windows 8 to work with NetWare servers.

We are running the latest iprint client (5.86).

The client will not install on the Windows 8 System.

It's 5.86 indeed.

I just tested the Windows 8 iPrint client install (64bit) and have no issues there. What error are you getting?
