Windows 7 with patched/current iPrint/ndps,etc NOT working 100%


So,, after making sure that patches were applied,
and making sure that all users had the uniqueID
and installing iPrint 5.30 - It looked for a while as if it was
working...but,nope...

Seems that the reason for us getting it to work on the pc's we tested
was that we manually had installed the printers first. If that's the
case, then I can add the printer through IPP.

But, If I remove the manually setup printer, the install fail's with
some windows error. If the driver is allready there and I add it again
as a iPrint printer, it works.


Example;
Printer is on ip 192.100.100.10

NDPSM/Server is on
IP 192.168.100.20

Clean PC
browse to server/ipp - install = fails/windows error.

PC with manually added printer
( 192.100.100.10 )
adding the iPrint printer through
Server/ipp - Install = OK and prints through
192.100.100.10

So,, like it's 2 different printers in "windows p.o.v"

Anyone with any ideas how to get around this ?

Windows DO state the usual about "not signed" etc when adding it
manually, but that question/option never comes when going through
iPrint.

This can happen if the driver that was uploaded is an unsigned driver. From Vista onwards the check for a signed driver has been made more stringent by Microsoft. Unsigned drivers are also not supported on iPrint.

Can you please check if your driver is signed or not.

Thanks,

What if this feature is disabled in the local group policy settings?
Would it work then with iPrint?

I actually tried with a tip found while searching;

bcdedit /set nointegritychecks ON

But,, that didn't help, still same issue;
if the driver is allready there = ok
if installing from scratch through iprint = nope...


sorry to say, Im using swedish win7, so the error message and core
give's 100% zero hits while searching
