Re: PushPrinterConnections.exe "not a valid Win32 application"

Are you running an x64 version of pushprinterconnections.exe on the x86
clients? I normally run the x86 binary on x86 and x64 clients which does
work.

if the application runs it will create a log with the -log switch, but I do
not think you are getting that far.

I am not sure how the binary was packaged on x64 R2 server but verify you
have the x86 version.

Alan - YOU THE MAN.

Beat me, whip me, make me write bad checks for not thinking of that.

This is my first x64 Server!

Re: PushPrinterConnections.exe "not a valid Win32 application" SOLVED

I normally run the file from the DC sysvol share or other network share as a
logon script in the policy so the network will be up for sure to make the
connection . I have seen issue where disabling Fast Logon Optimization is
required to get the printer connections but I have never had to do this when
running the binary from a network share.

I'd specify -log initially to get the ppcuser.log in %temp% for connections
per user or ppcmachine.log in %windir%\temp for connections per machine.
