To install server components for Mobile Session Print, please follow the steps below.

Technical requirements

For installation of the Mobile Session Print server component the following operating system is necessary:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 or higher

Core versions and cluster installations aren’t supported.

Note! The root certificate DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA must exist in the certificate store. If it’s been removed, download and reinstall it. Download: https://www.digicert.com/digicert-root-certificates.htm

Mobile Session Print is an optional feature which you can install also on separate servers. We don’t recommend to install this feature on servers ordinary users can interactively logon to.

Mobile Session Print can be installed together with the following ThinPrint com­ponents on a single server (provided it’s supported by the respective operating sys­tem):

  • License Server
  • ThinPrint Engine

Note! If Mobile Session Print and License Server are to run on the same server that’s running Windows 2008 R2 and the Windows name differ from the external URL, you must add the following two values to the Windows Registry manually:
1. hkey_local_machine\system\CurrentControlSet\Services\Lanman­Server\Parameters\DisableStrictNameChecking (REG_DWORD) = 1
2. hkey_local_machine\system\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\MSV1_0\Back­ConnectionHostNames (MultiString) = FQDN of the external URL (example: external.mydomain.com)

User account for installation

The servers on which License Server and ThinPrint Mobile Session Print are to be installed must be members of the same domain. For all stages of installation and con­figuration, you will need a normal domain user account with local administrator per­missions:

  • To install and configure the software, set up a normal user account in the AD (Active Directory). TPservice used here as an example.
  • Then give this account local administrator permissions on both the license server and on the Mobile Session Print server.
