Printing to a shared network printer in vista/7

 

Hello,

When printing to a shared network printer in windows vista/7 you get the annoying following message:

To use the shared printer, you need to install the printer driver on your computer”

If you want to print you must press the install driver button and wait for a 30 seconds to 1 minute  until the document is sent to the printer

The solution to stop this message  is simple

Step 1:

On the local Vista/7 computer, open up Local Group Policy Editor by clicking on Start – > Run then type “gpedit.msc

Step 2:

Navigate to –> Local Computer Policy –> User Configuration –> Administrative Templates –> Control Panel –> Printers

Double click on “Point and Print Restrictions” and  choose the settings like the picture below

and that’s it, the annoying message will never pop-up.

now you can print a document Peacefully.
