question
In our school, our students have lessions in different class rooms during the day. Each class room with it`s own printer.  When they select to print a document, we do not want them to see ALL the printers they have access to. We want them to see the ONE which is in the same room as they are in at the time.  How can we map the printers according to the user`s location?
  
answer

In order to map the printers according to the user`s location, please follow the steps below:

1. Download WCPrintManager.exe:
WCPrinterManager.exe

2. Copy WC Print Manager to your terminal server(s).

3. Launch WC Print Manager.

4. If the server you are using is a member of the domain you should see a list of all the computers on the network and also network printers.

5. Computers and printers can easily be manually added by double clicking the appropriate option.

6. Use the arrow buttons on the GUI to add/remove a selected computer to the desired printer.

7. Once configuration is complete click the `Save` button.

Implementation:

1. On the Terminal Server browse to C:\Program Files\Ericom Software\PtTsAgent 2. Create a folder there called `Scripts`

3. Use the following code to create a script which will call the WC Printer Manager - dim WshShell, oExec Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("C:\WC Printer Manager.exe /LOGIN")

4. Save as _login.vbs

If any errors occur during the login process logs are created in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\WC Printers.

Troubleshooting:

There is only 1 critical errors that this utility will generate, other non critical error will appear in the logs.

1. If you are receiving an application crash notification, it is because you need to have Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 installed on your server.
