Error: Printer driver was not installed - access denied


Cause: When you add the printer driver, Windows 2000 copies the printer's .inf file to the
%SystemRoot%\Inf folder. However, members of the Print Operators group do not
have permission to write to the %SystemRoot%\Inf folder, and access is denied.


Details Resolution: Use one of the following workarounds to install the printer driver:

1. Install the printer driver while you are logged on as an administrator or a member
of the Server Operators group.
2. Give members of the Print Operators group Write permission on the
%SystemRoot%\Inf folder.
3. Copy the .inf file to the %SystemRoot%\Inf folder in advance while you are logged
on as an administrator or a member of the Server Operator group.
