    in reply to: Printing from excel defaults are set back #290979

    Re: Printing from excel defaults are set back

    Even when duplex is set as the default print setting, when printing from excel the standard is off.

    Again when selecting duplex it just reverts to off again.

    Any other suggestions?

    Re: ISA server 2004 will not let me remote desktop

    Thanks i know how a firewal works…

    problem turned out to be something else not related to this

    in reply to: ISA server 2004 will not let me remote desktop #290977

    Re: ISA server 2004 will not let me remote desktop

    I know where the logging section is, but how do I correctly configure it to verify wther outside traffick on the RDP port is let through to the designated server. The rule is correct, now what log should I put there.

    So how do I see whether port 3389 is open for traffic? Also a question. If you enable logging do people need to try and log through terminal services to let these logs have effect?

    Does any one have a good answer?

    How can i make this available???

    Re: Enabling offline files and letting users access

    Ok I get the tab for offline files now. Another GPO was overriding the settings. Funny I thougght a GPO higher in prcedence should not have its settings overridden. Anyway. I have evrything now the user can go to the tab and say view offline files. However…

    When she logs in on cached credentials (network cable unplugged) she gets an error opening a file saying the file cannot be located. Plug the cable in again and it works. Can anybody pls tell me why this is????

    Re: Giving Rights to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSsoftware folderapplication

    mmm giving rights to just the hkey users key even though I know Hkey current users is a subset of this key doesn’t seem to work.

    Any ideas how to directly modify the hkey cirrent users key with helkp of a GPO?

    Re: Giving Rights to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSsoftware folderapplication

    Through Regedit I can do this, buy the thing is I want to give the users these rights from teh server through a GPO.

    But in teh setting windows settingssecurity settings registry when I want to edit a registry item All I can edit are the HKLM / CLASSES ROOT and USERS key. This works fine but I want to also edit the Hkey Current USesrs folder through a group policy or else I have to do this manually on all pc’s

    in reply to: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles #290962

    Re: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles

    Thank you for your help, the issue has been resolved. Through the script I was able to remove the connections in the registry by using a logoff script.

    Then I modified the logon script for the correct printers

    Thanx specially to Rems who provided the correct script

    in reply to: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles #290961

    Re: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles

    Rems the script worked like a charm, and finally deleted that key, however when I do a search with the registry key finder is till get all these key entries.

    Could your script be adapted to delete these? I will test it on a system first to see if that has any adverse affects

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERPrintersSettings]
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionDevices]
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionPrinterPorts]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionPrintPrinters]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetContro lPrintPrinters]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetHardwa re ProfilesCurrentSystemCurrentControlSetControl PrintPrinters]
    [HKEY_USERS.DEFAULTSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionDevices]
    [HKEY_USERS.DEFAULTSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionPrinterPorts]
    [HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIGSystemCurrentControlSetContr olPrintPrinters

    Sorry mouse your script did tremove the printers however also left the other entries in the registry. Once again I am not sure if it matters leaving them in does any one know?

    Re: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles

    Rick,

    Dummy ones won’t work, i simply get the message that this printer allready exists. Rems I will try and do the job with ur script I am hoping that there won’t be any adverse effects if i just delete the printers from the HKCUconnectionsprinters key.

    in reply to: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles #290959

    Re: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles

    Well strange thing is I can delete the registry key manually however I cannot delete the registry key with the previous script oit says unable to remove registry key. I thought it was a rights issue however under full admin rights I get the same error. Any ideas?

    in reply to: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles #290958

    Re: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles

    Dim WshShell, bKey

    Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)

    WshShell.RegDelete “HKCUPrintersConnections”

    ok I found this script and it works however of course the users don’t have rights to delete this key I have to find a good way of doing this

    in reply to: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles #290957

    Re: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles

    Now, can you try to delete one of these printers manualy-> by deleting the corresponding registrykey of that printer in; HKEY_CURRENT_USERPrintersConnections
    (?)

    Thanx a lot! THat did it! At least on one client. Do you know a vbs script that can delete this jkey? HKEY_CURRENT_USERPrintersConnections

    in reply to: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles #290956

    Re: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles

    You also asked the status of the printers on the clients:

    In english it is:

    Cant’s find printer on the server. Cannot make a connection

    Original message dutch:

    Kan printer niet op server vinden. kan geen verbinding maken.

    When I manually try remove I get:

    Original dutch message:

    Kan verbinding met printer niet verwijderen: U hebt ofwel een printernaam opgegeven die niet juist is of de opgegeven printer is niet langer verbonden met de server.

    English translation:

    Can’t remove connection with printer: You have either given a printername which is notcorrect or the given printer is not longer connected with server.

    They were installed with a script however the script does not have these printers in them any more.

    And like I said before I only manually changed the printernames on teh server the shares remain the same so teh name on the serve rwas printer1 shared as printer1 and i just changed the name to sales and left it shared as printer 1.

    I can’t remove it on the client., however I can add this printer again under the name sales again, however the old printer remains there, which makes it look liek a mess.

    Re: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles

    Thankx rems gonna try all this and let u know however to answer ryour previous question: Dit you only manualy changes the printernames on the server?
    And the sharenames are still the same?

    Yes I did, this is exactly what I did.

    in reply to: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles #290954

    Re: Script to remove obsolete printer in local profiles

    Thanx Rems this workjs great however maybe you or someone knows the following:

    When I want to delete the old printernames on the windows xp client systems it simply tells me that the printer doesn’t exist on the server and therefore cannot delete it. Also using a script the script will only delete the actual printers that have still valid names on the server. For instance:

    I changed a printername from sales to helpdesk. In the local printer settings from a user i cannot delete the old sales printer. Not even manually. However when I change the name back on the printserver from helpdesk to sales i can delete it again.

    However this would be a bit of an arduous task changing all the printernames back again and then using the script to delete the names. Is there way to force the deletion of these printers?

    I have 100 clients and the obsolete printers have to go. Is it possible to delete these in the registry? This way I could use group policy to delete the keys when a user loggs in. I already saw some keys but deleting these doesn’t actually delete them from control panel-> printers. PLs help
