Printer Settings not saving when used on Vista

  Graystark 17:30 22 Jul 2008


I've recently installed a Samsung ML-2010R printer on our network and I'm having trouble with the settings over the network.

The printer is installed on an XP machine, and I am using Vista over a domain. Any time I try to print, if I change the settings (copies/orientation etc) it doesn't actually save the settings and just prints in default mode.

I'm assuming it has something to do with security settings, but it seems to work on another XP machine that has the most restricting settings.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

If it's like my printer when I swapped from XP Pro to Vista Ultimate, I had to go to the Epson website to download the vista drivers for my printer. My guess is that you may have to do the same for your printer.

I have installed the latest Vista drivers on my PC already as it couldn't install them directly when I connected to the printer over the network.
