Problems with drivers and hardware compatibility in Windows Server 2016

Printers

Postby Lotusisrael » 20 Mar 2018, 15:44

I have recently installed WS 2016 on someone else„s machine who needed a working Windows installation urgently. I have helped him get WS 2016 and install it, all legaly. Now, all is well, except two nasty issues. He has two printers, both HP, one black and White, one color, the second one being also a scanner. The first one was installed, but it does not work, the second one the installation is restricted, saying it is not compatible with this OS. On Group Policy, an option regarding preventing users to install printer drivers was found, but it was disabled. Compatibility mode installation attempts failed. Any ideas?
