>> change the .inf by yourself
When you do that, you get the message that the driver isnt signed.
Ow.. And.. wait .. i'll get that beer.. ;-) ( at least working on it. )
Only tested it while entering the link : \\server.domain.tld\printershare
Still testing the deployment, but im buzy also with lots of other things.
So go testing is slow here.. please do test and report back here.
At least i can install the printer driver as user again.
Try the following.
Goto the policy.:
Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, and then Driver Installation.
Enable it, Klik below on Show.
Add this GUID:
( GUID found here : https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff553426(v=vs.85).aspx )
Reboot you computer 2x ! ( first to apply the setting, second to make use of it. )
Not the best solution in my optionion but the best i could find out for now.
We need better drivers from the printer suppliers, thats the only good fix.
