Printer Extension Common Save/Retrieve Location for V4 Driver

    Question

  • I have a question regarding the V4 Printer Driver + Printer Extension combo:

    - Where can they save and retrieve data that can be accessible for both desktop and Windows Store Printer Extension app and at the same time can be passed from servers to their clients ( Client-Server printing scenario ). Example of this is for saving driver settings profiles which can be created on the print server via the Printer Extension and will then be available to clients that connect to that print server's queue.

    DevMode property bag is limited only to 60KB according to documentation so this won't do.

    Driver and Queue property bags are read-only on Printer Extensions.

    User property bags are for per user use only.

    and registry ( via GetPrinterData/SetPrinterData ) is not accessible to the Store apps?

    What is MS suggested way for this?

    Thanks in advance!
