Hi has someone created a MSI (including printer's driver) to deploy printers?
All information about the printers deployment from MSI created by adminstudio are welcome... :)
Many thanks for your help.
Best regards

Unfortunately there is no built-in support in MSI to install Drivers. However you can use Editor in AdminStudio to install a device driver. If you have an inf file for your Printer driver, then the Device driver Wizard can be used to install the Printer driver with your msi package. The Device Driver wizard can be located under the Project Menu in InstallShield Editor.

Driver installation is not enough in this case. Additionally you must create spooler service control component and start/stop this service if you don't wan't to restart PC after printer installation.
