    Printer Dirver Profile works for Admin, not user...

    I am really excited about this new fangled 'Printer Driver Profile' thing,
    but it's not working as I expect it to.

    I have a test server in a test tree that is Netware 6.5 Sp2. I can create
    PDP's and associate them with printers.

    If I install the printer (from http://server/ipp) as an administrator, works
    great - the changes I applied in the profile are applied to the printer that
    gets installed to the workstation. however, if I am a lowly user, no go -
    the driver comes down just fine, but the settings I changed in PDP are not
    there. I am using iPrint client 3.11 on both the workstation I created the
    driver with and the user's workstation. Am I missing something else?

    I need to amend this problem a little bit - It seems to work just fine when
    I install a Xerox printer driver using PDP (the changes are there) but with
    an HP4000 and HP4200, the changes are not coming across... Anyone have any
    ideas?

    Perhaps the changes for the printer that works goes into HKCU, and the
    HP ones into HKLM ???

    Ok, but if I have AllowUserPrinters=1 in my iPrint.ini file, then shouldnt
    ALL printers that a user installs be put into HKCU - isnt that 'the point'
    with iPrint and NDPS?

    It Should be, and I do beleave that that's the way it works with the
    inst of the driver.

    I also do beleave, that you have found a bug, so please confirm, in
    order for somebody to report this to Novell
