278 views 2

During installation the following prerequisites will be installed, if they’re not already present:

  • Microsoft Windows Installer
  • ADAM instance from ThinPrint
  • License Manager
  • Personal Printing Setup and Support Files
  • Personal Printing

User account for installation

The server on which Personal Printing is installed, must be a member of a domain. For all stages of installation and configuration, you will need a normal domain user account with local administrator’s permissions:

  • To install and configure the software, set up a normal user account in the AD (Active Directory). We recommend that you name this PPservice.
  • Then give this account local administrator permissions on the Personal Printing server.

Installing Personal Printing

  • Log on to the Personal Printing server with the account described above.
  • Start the program Setup.exe.
