Installing iPrint printers on Windows 10 non-admin accounts

Hello,

I've been running into some roadblocks when trying to have users who are not administrators install printers from iPrint. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions to mitigate the issues I'm finding.

There are two issues I run into when printing:

- The user will be prompted to enter administrator credentials to install the printer if UAC is enabled:


- The administrator may be asked to trust the printer driver:
(Occurs for admin administrators as well)


I've come across articles such as this one that suggest modifying the 'Allow non-administrators to install drivers for these device setup classes' and 'Point and Print Restrictions' Group Policies but they do not seem to have any effect when I apply them. Is there a way to get printers installed on Window 10 from iPrint without disabling UAC? Is there a good way to automatically trust some print drivers?

1. iprint.ini settings
2. There is GPO policy named CL_Computer_IE11 is enabled under
ComputerConfiguration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components >
ActiveX Installer Service. If present, as a test try to delete it.
3. Check that you're running later code as there was an update iprint.js

it does not look like an iprint issue but a windows driver verify one. It looks like the printer driver is not digitally signed hence windows verifier  prompt  to accept it.

Disable windows driver verification and see if that help.

Thanks GMorera,

Tried using the group policy setting "User Configuration ->Administrative Templates -> System -> Driver Installation -> Code signing for drivers" enabled and selected ignore.

This setting did not help.  Is there anyway to do this via Group Policy?  What's the best way to "Disable windows driver verification" on Windows 10 machines.  I can get it to install properly if I do a Shift-Restart and then do the troubleshooting, advance options, startup settings and then F7 on Restart (Disable Driver Signature Enforcement) but not really practical if you need to install the driver on 100+ workstations.

Any further suggestions?
