Point and Pring Issue in VISTA using Build-in Administrator

Posted: 04-20-2007, 09:23 AM
1. Install a printer driver on Windows XP
2. Share this printer
3. Logon another VISTA client via Build-in Administrator
4. Drag this printer from the share printer.

==> Vista will pop up an error message that "can't call
print monitor..."


Use standard user is no problem. This maybe a bug of MS.

This is due to User Account Controls being disabled when the administrator
account is logged on. Yes this is a bug.

But this will work if the driver does not have an associated monitor.
