Xerox Global Print Driver

Jump to solution

I always wondered why during Xerox Global Print drivers installation there are two kinds of drivers apparently the same.

 

Usually the first line refers to "Xerox Global Print Driver PS, PCL, PCL6", while the line immediately below "Xerox GPD PS, PCL, PCL6 followed by a Vnumber".

 

Until now I always choose the first line, because I was unaware of the consequences of choosing the second. Today I was having a look at a Power Point document I downloaded a few time back from Xerox TSIP.

There is a slide titled "Windows Print Driver – Tips" that caught my attention and if I understood correctly the second line is for testing purposes, letting system administrators evaluate the impact of the new version before rolling it out, without disrupting the production's X-GPD, and so, having two parallels X-GPDs on the same server and/or PC.

 

Am I correct?

If you install the numbered version, it creates an independent installation so that if you update the driver it will not be affected.   I would say that it is the preferred installation rather than the non-numbered version.   You can use many versions of drivers without interference.
