Changing driver for one user changes it for all.

This is so odd to me. I'm googling for references but have
had no luck so far.

At one company, we have about a dozen people (on Windows XP) 
using the same Xerox printer. Everyone accesses the printer
as a local printer on an IP port.

We downloaded a new driver but wanted to roll it out carefully. 
I installed it on the admin machine by entering the Printer
Properties, Advanced tab, New Driver and made sure that the 
new driver was selected in the "Driver" drop down.

It turns out that changing the driver in this drop down 
changes it for everyone!! It wiped out saved settings too.

Question 1: Is this correct behaviour? Are these drivers
   associated with the physical printer in some way?
Question 2: Is it possible to have two users with different
   drivers?

I just tried the same thing on a different network and this
did not happen. Is this a Xerox thing? I am not at the company
where this happened right now so I can't experiment.

Thanks for your time.

..wk.

changed video card, how to change driver?
Hi All, I just upgraded Red Hat 8 to 9 and changed my ATI card out for an nVidia card. X did not work afterward, but fortunately nVidia's Linux driver download came with (very, very, LONG WINDED) instructions on how to manually alter my XF86Config(-4), so I got X working again. Before doing the manual method, I looked for a utility that would allow me to do it a little easily. I search for everything on Xconfigurator, config, XFConfig, XF86Setup, setup, etc., etc., and came up empty. The only thing I found was redhat-config-x, but it would not let me change t...

Hi All, I have a form and VB code in Access. The code is like With rs .Edit !Field = 10 .Update End With When I chang a value on the form. then the error shows up. The data has been changed.

If you try to edit the table from a different form while the second form/subfrm (linked to the same ...

Trace on change/Signal on change/Call on change
Is ooRexx getting any closer to having a mechanism which could be used to trace when a particular variable or stem variable gets changed (to a particular value)? I don't know whether I'm writing cleverer bugs, or my debugging skills are waning with age, but it is starting to take me days to track down some problems that would be a snip with a variable monitor. I've just fixed such a bug. It took me about three years, because it happened only once a year, on average.

Printer Issues - Change AD Password
Hi there, I currently use my Mac in a Windows only office. They have many printers and file shares set up with SMB sharing. They use Active Directory to authenticate users to the domain, as well as the shares. They are a requirement to change the password every 30 days. Unfortunately, this screws up the Windows network printers that I have added into my Mac. There seems to be NO way in the 10.3.5 GUI to change the password of a previously existing SMB network printer. Is there such a way? Is there a key that I need to press? Is there a command line terminal command to ent...

Move document between printers / More than one printer when changing USB port
I have an annoying problem in XP. I have only one printer, but if I plug it in a different printer port - XP insists it's a differnt printer!!! Stupid XP seems to do this with all USB devices (suggestion/complaint sent to MS). So I ended up with a load of documents in a dead queue, so why can't I just move them to the correct queue? The driver etc etc is the same as it's the same actual printer!!!! -- 11 parrots http://www.petersparrots.com 93 silly video clips http://www.insanevideoclips.com 1259 digital photos http://www.petersphotos.com Tell a man tha...

Changing Printer Drivers IN VBA
Hi, I need to be able to print or fax a record. I've got the record printing fine, but i need to somehow change the printer driver to winfax if they want to fax it. I was planing on using a seprate button to winfax. Is there a way to change the printer driver in the _click() event. Any advise or pointers would be grateful, Simon. Yes you can set default printers in VBA however a much simpler method is to copy the report and set its print properties instead for the winfax driver. -- John Hawkins - http://www.fabalou.com "Simon" <simonrlee22@hotmail.com> wrote in m...

iTunes changed my changes
Don't know when it happened- could have been with the update of iTunes prior to the update of iOS7, but here's what happened: A few weeks ago, I changed the name of the four movements of a Mozart Symphony so that it would appear separately from the exact same symphony by another artist. This is the default which I had: Mozart: Symphony #41 In C, K 551, "Jupiter" - 1. Allegro Vivace which I changed to: Mozart: S41 In C, K 551, "Jupiter" - 1. Allegro Vivace The separation worked as expected. BUT: Somewhere, somehow the changes got reverted to what ...

Changes and frequency of changes
Hi, I observe variable x over time (from 1999-2005) for a large number of firms, w. I have computed the change in variable x from one year to the next. Now, I would like to identify whether variable x has changed from one year to the next for each firm as well as how often it changed for each firm(in some cases I expect no change in this variable i.e. 0). Any suggestions on how to do this in sas?

how to change the change defaults
hi friends, it might be a stupid question to state. but i really need to know while programming, to change the defaults like changing the engineering notation of a real quantity i.e. fraction values or change the fix parameters to denote real value if our calculations involve the values as low as 0.000000001 and as high as 10000000. thanks hemu bisht ...

DST to change or not to change?
Should the clocks be changed twice a year or not? (not that we have much say in the matter) Some think it saves lives by avoiding traffic accidents and note the advantages of a coordinated timekeeping system for trade. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20050811.wdaylight0810/BNStory/National Since most of Canada is between north latitude 49 deg to 90 deg, and the days and nights are longer the further north you go, the arguments for saving daylight seem to be overwhelmed by the larger natural changes. OTOH DST is not needed at smaller latitudes in the tropics. ...

compile, change dir, change code all in one vim window.
Folks, I just started using vim for programming. I would really like to hear from you guys on how can I effectively use vim. This is my inefficient way to do few things. Let say code I want to change is in usr/my_code/src dir. make file is in usr/my_code/make dir. and I am using CVS for version control. So this is what I do: 1. Let say I am in my_code/src dir. 2. I go back level (cd ..) and do cvs udpates (to see if there are changes in code). Observe new, changed, deleted files, this gives me idea of what is happening in project. 3. Go to now my_code/make dir and run my make sc...

Changelog not showing changes from one particular user
I'm baffled as to how to even approach this problem with CVS/WinCVS. When one of our developers commits changes to the repository, they show up in the log (not yet reformatted with ChangeLog macro via WinCVS). When I run ChangeLog macro, everyone else's changes but her's shows in the changelog. Sometimes we have to reinstall WinCVS on her machine because WinCVS inexplicably crashes on startup (it's happened to me a couple of times too). But when that's not happening, her ability to use CVS in other respects is the same as everyone else. Where do I begin to look ...

RE: [tao-users] Minor change in structure changed all return types of structure to pointer
Hi Aaron, I think the difference between FooBar and FooBaz is that the former is a fixed sized type whilst the latter is a variable sized type (i.e. contains an unbounded string). This indeed changes the signatures in the C++ mapping.

Changing UNIX tty driver keys -- Suggested changes to "termios" module
Should I add an RFE to SourceForge too? I'd like a wide audience in case someone has enough experience to comment or is solving the same problem. I'm using the urwid library which uses curses. On my system (Mac OS 10.3.7) I specifically have ncurses. The programs I'm running turn off echoing and set raw mode but don't disable interrupts. For development purposes I like having interrupts, but my preferred keystrokes (WordStar) conflict with the tty driver's use of ^C, ^Z, ^V, and maybe other keys. Here's a piece of code based on the example in section 8.8.1 of the ...

one line only, change x axis from number to words, and change keys into points of the line?
Hello all: I searched the manual but not find the following answers. I want to draw a one line chat, with different points related with the time of each experiments. For example: x axis is exp1, exp2, exp3, exp4, exp5, and y axis is the time. I know how to set y axis, but my questions are: 1. how can I change x axis from number 1-5 into words like "exp1", "exp2", "exp3", "exp4", "exp5". 2. Since there is only one line, I want the legend (keys) to be the points of the line, not each line, how can I do that? Using...

Toplevel VI: change all instances of sub VI to new VI w/o changing each one
In a top level VI is there any way to change all instances of a subVI automatically without going through and changing each instance manually. How you do this depends upon the new subVI. If it is the same name, then by replacing one, it will replace them all, since LabVIEW loads VIs into memory by their name. However, if it's a VI of a different name, there's no way to have it automated. I had never thought of that before, but it would certainly be a good product suggestion for NI. Yes, open the top and make sure all VI's including dynamic calls are open. Find one instance of...
