    iprint moves to top print provider when pc starts

    I have moved iPrint so it is not the first listed provider in '
    Provider
    Order' - 'Print Providers' in 'Advanced Settings' under 'Network
    Connections' in XP. When the machine is rebooted iprint moves back to
    the
    first spot. It will also do this if I go to the iprint web page and
    add a
    iprint printer from it.

    Is there a way to stop this from happening? AutoCad has problems with

    printers if iPrint is listed first in the 'Provider Order'.

    Best Regards,
    Jim Koerner

    Jim,

    This is working as designed. It was designed this way to eliminate
    other print providers from being added to the workstation and then
    pushing the iPrint provider down the list, causing delays in iPrint
    printer name resolution. To my knowledge, there is no way to disable

    this feature.

    Thanks for the info. I think we can live with it. The problem is
    only when
    trying to configure a new printer setup in AutoCAD. Everyone uses the
    same
    predefined printer configuration files from the server. When I change
    or
    add new printers for AutoCAD I will have to remember to move iprint
    down the
    list before doing anything.

    Best Regards,
