Will my printer work with Windows 2003 Server?

Answer

Will my printer work with Windows 2003 Server?

While none of our drivers are specifically created for or tested on Windows 2003 all Windows XP/2000 drivers can work with some modification.

The following printer drivers should work without any modification:

  • BravoPro
  • Bravo II
  • LX800
  • Signature Z6

All other printers with XP/2000 drivers require the following modification to the operating system.

  1. Run gpedit.msc (Group Policy Editor) - Go to Start - Run - Type in gpedit.msc - Click OK.
  2. Choose Computer Configuration - Administrative Templates - Printers.
  3. Set Disallow installation of printers using kernel-mode drivers to Disabled.

Please Note: Running XP/2000 drivers on Windows 2003 server is not a supported configuration. If you encounter problems running the drivers on this Operating System tech support cannot provide support.
