windows 10 1607 printer installation from windows 2012 r2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • after doing a few windows 10 anniversary upgrades  the printers already installed on PC's have gone haywire.. the default settings have changed from the default settings to print double sided, tray 4 instead of 2

    after removing the printers and reinstalling from  (windows 2012 r2) server the default settings of the printer are not brought across, windows 10 1607 appears to change the settings that have been setup on the server and wants to print double sided

    how do we sort this out?

  • We're having the same issue. It's not the same issue as the one in the link Rik Li posted. This needs to be fixed MS.
