Printing Access Rights
Hi there,
I have a problem where I can print on my Lexmark printer as I
am an admin user, but my children cannot. They are logged on as normal
users. The issue definitely appears to be access rights, because if you log
on as a normal user and select Run as Administrator on the print properties
dialog, the Print Test Page option then works. Does anyone know how to fix
this?

Re: Printing Access Rights
Is this a Lexmark driver that is included in Vista?

I know of two vendors who have drivers that write something to the
\windows\temp directory and this will fail for users.

The file creation process should be performed by the spooler. If the driver
is calling create in the user context, then this failure would be expected.

Hi Alan,
no, I downloaded them from Lexmark. I'll try giving access to
that folder.

Re: Printing Access Rights
I gave users read / write access to windows\temp. That appears to have
worked..

Thanks.

Re: Printing Access Rights
Please inform Lexmark of this error.

Also could you give the printer model and the driver version and I can work
with Lexmark from the Microsoft side.

thanks
