    Adding printers (Windows XP Pro)

    Does anyone know of a work around to allow a power user on a computer to install a local printer on a Windows XP Pro computer?

    Thanks,

    The following may work - they are reversible if they don't.

    Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Local Security Policy/Local Policies/User Rights Assignment/Load and unload device drivers - then add a user or group
    Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Local Security Policy/Local Policies/Security Options and make sure that the key "Devices:Prevent users from installing printer drivers" is disabled.
