    Hi,

    i want to deploy network printers to Wyse 5070s with Windows 10 IoT Enterprise.
    We are using WMS 3 but i did not find any option for installing printers.

    Or do we have to use GPOs?

    Instaling the printers manually is not an option because we have 22 sites with at least 5 TCs each.

    Thx

    What exactly do you want to do? Install printer drivers or just add a shared network printer?
    Installing can be done with WMS and App Policy. Latter should be done via AD scripts or GPOs.

    Thx a lot for the quick reply.

    I would like to install the printer driver and connect a network printer directly using the ip address.

    So i deploy the driver (the same as for “normal” W10?) over WMS App Policy.
    But i need to join the TC to the domain and use GPOs or scripts for the printer itself?

    No need to domain join the client.
    Install the printer driver via WMS and use whatever way you prefer to define the network printer then. This could be a script that you push by WMS or simply define it locally.

    Hi,

    do i need an exe-file to deploy the printer driver or is it possible to use just the inf-file and its dependant files?

    Hi ConfGen,

    could you please give me a short answer if i need an exe-file to install the printer driver if i can use the inf, sys and dll files.

    The problem is that i don’t have an exe-file directly from the maufacturer so i would have to make one.

    Thx

    To install the driver via WMS or any other management software (that I know of) you would need an installation package. This could be a .exe or a .msi package.
    If you only have .inf files then you can install these locally on the client and then use WMS to pull the whole image and push it back to the rest of the clients.
