"Printer driver was not installed. Access is denied" error message on Vista

Charlesjb
I have a couple of users facing the same problem. Both are running Vista Business. I'm trying to connect both users to our printer server, but every time during the process of copying the drivers (or after, I'm not sure), the a/m error message pops up. I tried to install it using the local port option too, same result. The weird part is that on the same computer, login as admin I'm able to install the printer, but it is not available on the user side. I'm sure it is an access right problem, but I don't know where to look .Ah!!, I already uninstalled the printers and installed back with same results.

    Try the "Questions" forum; the "Discussion" forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

    Post problems such as this to the "Question" forum, rather than the "Discussion" forum. There are those who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution, and that's where they go to look for such.

    Additionally there are the benefits that:

    1) The "Questions" forum provides for your feedback, by way of your being able to mark "helpful" responses as such. This does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but only that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours, so that they might have a ready source of reference available, thereby perhaps obviating the need for them to repeat questions previously asked and answered.

    2) The revised TR makes it quite difficult to find both "Discussions" and "Questions" that have not had a fairly recent post, owing to some functions comingling them in the listings. By keeping each type in their respective forums, it is easier for all to find what they are looking for.
