This guide is for non-domain or self-administrated windows systems.

Quick connect to PRINTING (old screenshots from adprint!) for non domain users:

1.  Quick connect: with a script (using our print server)

If you work as user with "admin rights" got to point 1. Download...

As user with normal rights please log on as Administrator or open a command prompt with admin rights and copy and paste the following command:

reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Printers\PointAndPrint" /v RestrictDriverInstallationToAdministrators /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

type enter.

Here is also the registry key fix for the printer nightmare from microsoft:


1. Download Attach:Connect1_Printing.zip (new and updated 25.8.21) unpack and run batch file

2. Run Connect_Printing.bat with a double click

4. Click on "More Info"

5. and Select "Run anyway"

3. Follow the command line steps , and insert your fhi username (hit return to proceed)

If your username and password is accepted - press enter!

4. A printer window appears - please select a printer from the PRINTING window and double click to your favorite printer.

5. Your favorite printer will be installed.

6. If no printer Windows appears and you become an error message like: "We can't sign you in with this credential because your domain isn't available. Make sure your device is connected to your organization's network and try again."

Please reboot your PC, log on, and start the batch file again, thanks.
