[Printer Driver] Client-Server Issue: Settings made in Server is not reflected in client immediately RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I am installing the printer driver (V3) in Server 2008 R2 as follows;
    1. Add x64 printer driver (Model XYZ) to Server PC.
    2. Add x86 printer driver (Model XYZ) to Server PC as "Additional Drivers".
    3. Open "Configuration" tab and does some settings which is supported by the printer.
    4. Open "Advanced" tab and press "Printing Defaults...".
    5. Set the following settings (for Eg).
    - "2 Staple" as "Staple"
    - "On" as "Punch"
    - "Finisher Lower Tray" as "Output"
    6. Execute "Point and Print" and install x86 printer driver to Client PC (Win 7 32 Bit).
    7. Open "Printer Preferences" in the client PC and confirm current settings.

    [Expected Results]
    The settings are as follows:
    - "1 Staple" as "Staple"
    - "On" as "Punch"
    - "Finisher Lower Tray" as "Output"

    [Actual Results]
    The settings are as follows:
    - "None" as "Staple"
    - "Off" as "Punch"
    - "Finisher Upper Tray" as "Output"

    As long as we refer Microsoft developer pages, the DevDMode values are synchronized at 300 seconds. So we cannot get correct DevDMode until 1st synchronization is executed. We tried to use OpenPrinter2() and set PRINTER_OPTION_NO_CACHE flag, but cannot correct values.

    Is there a way to perform faster synchronization and get the values quickly in client PC?

    Warm Regards,
