    Hi
    I have a network with AD 2008 and around 500 win 7 PC. I dont give users admin rights on PCs but want them to be able to install printers shared from server.
    I found a few articles about doing it via GPO and applied all GPs as per book:
    1) Computer ConfigurationPoliciesWindows SettingsSecurity SettingsLocal PoliciesSecurity OptionsDevices: Prevent users from installing printer drivers – Disabled
    2) Computer ConfigurationPoliciesWindows SettingsSecurity SettingsLocal PoliciesSecurity OptionsUser Account Control: Detect application installations and prompt for elevation – Disabled
    3) Computer ConfigurationPoliciesAdministrative TemplatesSystemDriver InstallationAllow non-administrators to install drivers for these device setup classes – Enabled ( {4d36e979-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} , {4658ee7e-f050-11d1-b6bd-00c04fa372a7} , {48721b56-6795-11d2-b1a8-0080c72e74a2} )

    Group policy is applied to a PC (checked with rsop) but user still getting UAC prompt when trying to connect shared printer.

    Thanks
