I'm at my wits' end on this one.
End-user is trying to print at home to her wireless printer, a LaserJet Pro M1217nfw. Every time she tries to connect, it asks for admin privileges to install the driver.
After some research, I find this article:
I make the changes to the two printer classes in Group Policy. I've ensured that the GPO has been applied to the laptop. Using a laptop with the same GPO, I was able to get my home USB printer to connect (using my normal user privs, no elevation). Great!
When my user tries it at home, though, she isn't able to get any farther than a UAC prompt. This happens when she tries to do this wirelessly or via a USB port to tes.
My theory is that I need to add another device type. If there is a way for me to determine what Device Class that printer is asking for, I suspect I could just add the GUIDs to the GPO, but I don't know how to determine that. Nothing is leaping out at me in Event Viewer.
1.) What am I doing wrong for laptops accessing home printers?
1A.) Is this not a best practice at all to let users install printers on work laptops? If that's the case, how do you manage users' home printing?
2.) If my solution is just to add a Device Class, how do I find out what Device Class a peripheral is identifying itself?
