Install Client on Windows

You have two options from which to install the PrinterLogic Client on a Windows device.

For the client to function correctly on Windows 7, you must be running Service Pack 1. Additionally, update KB4474419 must be installed. For more information, refer to your Microsoft Windows documentation.

Option 1: Install the Client with a Third-party Application

Run the PrinterInstallerClient.msi with the following command line parameters:

Copy Code
\\servershare\PrinterInstallerClient.msi /qn HOMEURL=http://Webstack_Home_URL_Here AUTHORIZATION_CODE=Auth_Code_Here

or

Copy Code
msiexec /i PrinterInstallerClient.msi /qn HOMEURL=http://Webstack_Home_URL_Here AUTHORIZATION_CODE=Auth_Code_Here

Ensure that if a cert is being used, the home URL you add contains HTTPS://

  • PrinterInstallerClient.msi is in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\public\client\setup folder of your server.
  • The Authorization Code can be created in the Admin Console under Tools > Authorized Devices. One code can be applied to any number of devices for authorization.
  • The client installation package can be found in the Admin Console under Tools > Settings > Client.
  • The /qn command runs the install silently.
  • You can copy the PrinterInstallerClient.msi to a different distribution point.
  • If installing on a multi-user environment such as Terminal Services or Citrix XenApp, you will need to configure the client for Remote Desktop Services mode. Configure for RDS Mode

Option 2: Install the Client with a Group Policy Object Software Package

  1. Open the c:\inetpub\wwwroot\public\client\setup folder on the web server. In the folder is a config.ini that is used to specify the home directory of the Client, which knows what page to open to when users click Start > Programs > Printer Installer > Add Printer or the system tray icon. Only the home directory value is required. For example:

    Copy Code
    HomeURL=http://printers.domain.com
  2. Edit the config.ini file to reflect your webserver url, then place

    Copy Code
    c:\intepub\wwwroot\public\client\setup.msi

    and the config.ini file

    Copy Code
    c:\inetpub\wwwroot\client\setup.msi

    in a distribution folder.

  3. Follow the steps in this article to set up the Group Policy Object Software Installation Package.
