iPrint / Actuate reporting

I've got an accounting package that uses the Actuate reporting engine.
When I go to the web administration for it, and refresh the printer list
(which looks at the local printers installed), no iPrint printers will
show in the list.

I can add a printer and put in the http://server/ipp/printername (and
then I have to go give it a driver) and that works...

Suggestions? Rather annoying that I have to go get drivers for all the
printers in the building when they are sitting right in iPrint.

Re: iPrint / Actuate reporting

Sounds like there is some registry setting Actuate is looking at that gets
set with the "Add Printer Wizard" vs the iPrint install via a web page.
Question is, what registry setting???

Is Actuate a product one can download for eval...???

I believe it is because there are places in the registry where "real"
printers get added but not iPrint printers. I don't know if it's avail
for eval.

Ok if you look in the registry (windows 2003 server in this case)

hklm\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\print\printers

There is a key for printers added via the add printers windows process,
but not one for printers added with iPrint.

There is also one created under

hklm\system\currentcontrolset\control\print\printers

Odder still

hkey_users\.default\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\devices
I have 3 printers installed, 2 iprint, 1 using the add printer wizard
pointing to the http iprint address. It shows that and 1 of the iPrint
printers bu not both and 1 regular.

Re: iPrint / Actuate reporting

Are the iPrint printers "user printers" or were they installed
as "workstation printers". If they are user printers the printer
reference is stored in the user hive and may not be visible to some
applications. The iprint.ini is where this setting is located. If you
are running terminal server then you select the profile from the iprint
client settings on the terminal server.

User printers I'm guessing. Silly question, how do I install them as
workstation printers. Basically I installed them off my iprint building
map that I set up. I've also installed them with iprntcmd with no change.

It was system printers. I set the iPrint client to install system
printers only, reinstalled the printer and badaboom badabing...
