Silent / Unattended install of the Xerox GPD PCL6 Driver on Windows 10 Enterprise 1607 (x64).

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.

 

 

Kind regards,

Sidney

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.
