printer won't install

By symesd ·
On a windows NT4 w/s, printing to another NT4 w/s' printer...when I install the printer as the user...it installs but just does not send anything to the printer. If I print a test page...nothing goes.

If I logon as administrator and do the same install steps it works fine. But as the user it won't. Why?

Also, MS has a way of editing the registry so new users get a default printer...what about a variation on this to get my problem solved...I mean, what about moving the administrator'sregistry settings to the User's branch of the registry....I just don't know how, maybe it is b/c we use Roaming profiles. Any thoughts?

This sounds like a permissions issue on the print server (that is, on the NT workstation where the printer is installed). Your user ID has to have permissions on the print server to print to the printer. Go to the workstation that's sharing the printer, and make sure that your user ID has at least User level rights to that workstation. Then, also go to the properties of the printer and in the Security settings for that printer, make sure your user ID has at least Print permissions. Hope this helps!

Printer Won't install.

1. Have you given the rigth permission to your users. please check your printer permissions.
2. Do you shared your printer, please check.
3. You may also tried to use net use port# \\servername\sharename

Hope it may help you
