First time in this forum; hope someone can help me out and thanks to those who try.
I know from the documentation on some of the older drivers that this was a problem, but the driver version I'm using doesn't list it as a known issue yet I'm still experiencing the problem.
I have two plotters, a 510 and a 6204, that use the same driver. Our print server is Windows 2008 R2 which is, of course, 64 bit. I'm now using version 14.0.4 of the HPGL2 FreeFlow Access Driver. I add the plotter to the server, which shares the printer by default, and everything is fine.
Now the problem arises when I need to go back into the share settings and "list in Active Directory" or add additional drivers. As soon as I click the "OK" button the printer becomes unshared. I can go back into the properties and reshare the printer, but it will unshare when I hit ok. I can watch the share icon appear/disappear in my printer list.
I've tried different driver versions and Googled to no avail.
