Policy Enabled blocking driver install
I have serched through the policies on VISTA and cannot locate under
'secpol.msc' a policy that restricts me from installing earlier versions of
drivers. (label printer specific). I need to allow this driver to install and
not to get the message... "Windows cannot connect to the printer. The printer
driver is not compatible with a policy enabled on your computer that blocks
NT 4.0 drivers" -
The driver is specific to the label printer (post office software - oh
dear!) could someone direct me to the policy!
I have the same problem. Trying to install a CADJET 2 plotter, no supporting
drivers for Vista. Hope someone has a solution!!!
I am still having the same problem...anyone found a solution yet??
I figured out how to do this. You have to create a new port, install the latest driver even if it is for XP. When you add the printer, do not select the network printer option. Select the add local printer.
Re: Policy Enabled blocking driver install
I dont think this will work as i am having the same issue with a label printer, and if i am correct, this error occurs when trying to connect to a 'shared' printer via another PC with USB and not when installing a Networked printer which is what your solution of creating a port will effectivly do.
