Hi Xerox Community people,
For a customer I am working on a "task sequence" powershell script to create a golden/master image for Windows 10 Enterprise 1607 (x64) in their new VDI environment.
When it comes to printing the customer has a Xerox WorkCentre 7835 that is used for "Follow Me" printing in their domain.
I found an installer/setup file for the Xerox Global Printer Driver PCL6 (x64) which will be used in the golden/master image.
Only the installer can be partially setup silently/unattend. It popups a "add printer wizard window". I am now in doubt if the driver is correctly (fully) installed if this wizard is skipped, because the printer will be mapped by VMware User Environment Manager (UEM).
Do you guys/girls know if there is a setup/installer which can be used to install the Xerox Global Printer Driver PCL6 (x64/x86) without any interaction and the add printer wizard?
When I use the exported Xerox folder (C:\Xerox) I see an *.inf file which can be installed by pnputil -i -a, but it looks like it is missing some parts. When a user try to connect to the printer an error messages appears while adding the printer, during the "downloading driver" fase, which a user is not allowed to (no local admin permissions).
Hope some of you can help me out.
Thank you in advance.

Thank you CherylO-Xerox for your reply, but that page doesn't give any help.
I have found another solution. In my opinion not a nice way, but it works.
Have used the powershell commands:
Image is not domain joined, setup connection to the printer server in the domain:
- net use $printserver /USER:$domain\$username $password
Add specific printer (share name) including drivers:
- Add-Printer -ConnectionName "$printserver\$followmeprinter"
Remove the printer from the current user profile:
- Remove-Printer *$printserver\$followmeprinter*
Disconnect the connection to the print server:
- net use $printserver /DELETE
Hope this will help other users too.
