Need help out of Zebra Printer Driver hell

Hi Shirley,

Thank you for the links.

Citrix auto creates printers when you logon to Vantage.
I have been able to load the Zebra drivers and have them
Work with out crashing the spooler.

1. I load the driver on the server as a local printer. It is absolutely
necessary to set all preferences at this time. The settings are used
when the printer is auto created.

2. I delete the printer from printers and faxes.
This leaves behind all the files needed to auto create the printer.

3. Zebra has chosen to mess around with the printer name. There is a
file used by Windows. Look at Windows article 214593 Windows Terminal
Server
and Metaframe ICA Client cannot auto create some printers.
You ultimately have to change the wtsuprn.inf file.

The problem that I have now is I just bought some Zebra TLP-2844-Z
printers.
They are a little different than the TLP-2844 printers.

I am going through the initiation process.

Thanks for your posts,

John Mansfield

Hi everyone,

I have been for a week been trying to fix a problem with
Zebra TLP2844 and TLP2844-Z printers. They were working fine.
Then stopped. We are running Vantage on a Metaframe 1.8 Citrix
Server on windows 2000.

I have spent tooo much time at various levels of tech support at Zebra
and the calls to Seagull have refered me back to Zebra.

Does anyone reccomend an other label printer?
Has anyone else gone through this?

Our custmers are really getting grumpy.

Thanks,

Some things that I've encountered with Zebras.
1. If using a print server DO NOT put them in with other printers.
Sharing Zebras MUST have their own print server machine with no other
printer installed. The mix of drivers continually crashes the print
spooler.
2. if you have a second printer on the same machine it will continually
crash your spooler.
3. Try flushing the printer drivers out of your system, delete all
printer installations and flush the drivers. (I'll post the link for this
when I get to work.
