XPS Printing from within a service -- Windows Server 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • After reading the details of Session zero isolation for Windows services (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb756986.aspx) it seems that there is no longer Microsoft approved way in which to systematically host XPS printing as a service on Windows Server 2012 R2.  I believe there was an update for Server 2008  that enabled legacy print service functionality to run on the newer platform (KB971512).  Is there any similar update available for Server 2012 R2? And if not, how can centralized printing be implemented?

  • Thank you Kevin for the response and the links. 

    My server is already setup, so the info on installing Print and Document Services isn't relevant.  Also, since I am using Windows Server 2012R2, the reference to installing XPS printing on XP and Server 2003 is off subject.

    I took you advice and posted this question on the TechNet forum. 

    Thanks again.

    I clicked the link , but it became invalid .

    Due to My Win 10 version , I just search online .

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj134159(v=ws.11).aspx

    If you have the following operating system :Windows Vista and later versions of Windows. For Windows XP with SP2 and Windows Server 2003,you can install XPS Document writer . Here is the link about how to print to the Microsoft XPS Document :http://www.thewindowsclub.com/print-microsoft-xps-document-writer-windows-7

    Because your question is more related to usage question of the windows sever, for better support ,you can post a question on TechNet forum . here is the link :
