Add and remove Printers

By GJ2008 ·
Can anyone advise me on how I can setup XP Pro PCs to enable users to install and remove printers whilst having the strictest of restrictions to their local accounts on the PC? The PCs will be locked down so users cannot install/remove software.

The problem is that printer drivers are software that effects all users of the computer. Only an administrator can install such software.
On the other hand, if all printers are the same (thereby using the same driver) then you could add a second or third printer of the same model.

Try installing the printers as administrator then log in as the user and install the printers, usually this works. If not, go to the system32 file, find the spool file and give full access to everyone.
