Saving Printer Settings RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    I am trying to save and deploy the printer settings to different computers on Windows 7 Pro.

    Addition Info: Printer Driver is Lexmark Universal v2 XXL (2.11.0.0)

    What I have done is:

    1. Save default printer settings:

    rundll32 printui.dll PrintUIEntry /Ss /n "Printer1" /a "C:\temp\printer_default.dat" d g

    2.  added a custom paper size

    rundll32 printui.dll PrintUIEntry /Ss /n "Printer1" /a "C:\temp\printer_mod.dat" d g

    Now I am tryint to restore the default settings:

    rundll32 printui.dll PrintUIEntry /Sr /n "Printer1" /a "C:\temp\printer_default.dat" d g r  --> doesnt work

    So, if I manually delete all moddified config: 

    rundll32 printui.dll PrintUIEntry /Sr /n "Printer1" /a "C:\temp\printer_mod.dat" d g r  --> doesnt work either

    What does work is, if I manually export/import HCU/Printers/DevModePerUser/Printer1

    But even then I can only edit normal settings like potrait and landscape orientation. It doenst have any effect on custom paper size. 

    Now I am wondering wether it is because of my printer driver or I havent properly saved and restored my printer settings.

    Thanks in Advance!

  • Sorry but this is not a Lexmark printer driver support forum.

    We would recommend using Group Policy Preferences for deploying printers.

    Other than that, you need to ask the vendor about driver-specific questions.
