WINDOWS NT 4.0 REGISTRY: A Professional Reference by Steven B. Thomas Chapter 15 Printer Entries
Con2prt.exe from the Windows Zero Administration Kit or
1. I installed the driver and set up the printer manually using
Settings..Printer...Add Printer. 2. I then looked at HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\W indows NT x86\Drivers\Version-2\<driver-name> 3. This gave me the names of the driver files that had been installed in \WINNT\System32\Spool\Drivers\w32x86 4. I then did an export of HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\W indows NT x86\Drivers\Version-2\<driver-name> using regedit 5. I also did an export of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers\<prin ter name> using regedit Before testing the install I deleted all entries on my machine for the printer and driver, following the instructions in Q135406, and rebooted the machine. So at this point the driver/printer were no longer installed. I then rebooted the machine and copied the driver files(which I had copied and deleted earlier) back into \WINNT\System32\Spool\Drivers\w32x86 , ran the reg file created at 4. above, then the one created at 5. above. I then rebooted and hey presto, the driver was installed and the printer available. I have not yet tried installing the driver this way on another machine, however Also although by editing the reg file created at 5. above, I was able to amend the name of the printer entry, I was not able to amend the name of the driver entry. If I did so I got an error about the driver not being installed when I tried to access the Properties tab for the Printer, although the registry entries seemed to tie together.
