Network printers installed on Windows 7 that use 3rd party printer drivers, rather than in-box drivers, are not available for MED-V applications.
On Windows XP SP3, the following accounts have permission to install a third-party driver:
· Local administrator
· Members of the Administrators group
· Members of the Power Users group that have the Load and unload device drivers right
If the MED-V users are not members of these groups, the network printers installed on Windows 7 will not be installed in the MED-V Windows XP workspace.
1. Grant the MED-V Users access to groups that have permission to install third-party printer drivers.
2. Disable printer sharing for the MED-V workspace. Please refer to the MED-V help file for addtiional information on the PrinterSharingEnabled registry setting.
MED-V printing setup and configuration events are reported in the MED-V logs and are only available if the MED-V event log Level is set to debug.
