Printer and port installation -non admin users RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have postscript printer driver with the port monitor. I have developed C++ utility(exe) to automate port creation (Including portmonitor) using system APIs.
    However, for this to work, I need to run the port creation utility as administrator. Now that I need to integrate the same in some external MSI package, I want to know is there any way we can get the printer port created by non admin users? Is there any way to override OS restrictions?

    Requirement is when MSI executed by non admin users, port and printer must be installed. Or is this MUST to have admin previllage?

    Please let me know.
