lock still appeared

I enabled the guest account in Windows 7 and the lock went away. Is this the best set up? Thanks for your work on this.

I'm using Windows 7 (64 bit), any other suggestions. My computer does not have multiple accounts. It logs in automatically on boot up.
You need to enable the guest account in windows:
Control panel > user accounts. And turn guest account on and reboot. See the origional post. I have updated it with instructions to fix this.

Thanks....this fixed it. I also used your instructions to automatically login. It is working fine now.

One follow up question: I noticed that when my PC (which my old HP printer is hooked to) goes to standby mode that the Printer is no longer available on my Apple device. Is there a way to make the printer available on the apple device when the computer goes to standby? I have my PC set to go to standby after 5 or 10 minutes to save energy.

Thanks again.

It's not really an AirPrint issue. You might want to look into Wake on Lan/"Allow this device to wake the computer" for your system. You won't be able to print while the system is on standby.

I get no airprint printers found on my iphone.

-Enabled guest account.
-Firewall shows airprint is configured for access and disabling firewall didn't help.
-Tried guest account and my account in airprint configuator.
-No errors thrown anywhere I can see.
-itunes and bonjour are up to date.

Desktop is win7x64 wired to time capsule and can print to wifi printer no problem. iphone is on same network.

Does airprint drop an error log file somewhere?

I fixed it, I forgot about sharing the actual printers on the computer.

Anyone remember the directory where Cute PDF saves files when printed via airprint?

Thumbs up Windows server 2003 x64

Came across these instructions after getting an iPad 2 with iOS5 and found my old installation of AirPrint didn't work anymore (printers didn't show).

...
Hi, thought I would reply to ianis question about Windows server 2008. I run server 2003 x64 although I don't run Active Directory, but I did hit exactly the same issue where I couldn't "unlock" the printer on the iPad device after trying various different accounts including the guest account and changing privileges. However, what I did notice is that my shared printer on my server was shared via a Terminal Services session (as I only access it using Remote Desktop). So I thought I would add a new printer directly to the server (i.e. not via Remote Desktop) and sharing that, sure enough that worked for me.

My set up if it is of any help, is an old HP Lazyjet connected to a D-Link network print server. I run Windows Server 2003 x64 SP2 on a server PC which I leave on and acts as a file/media server and the printer is configured using a custom TCP/IP port, so it appears as a local printer.

Just a note about service dependencies, you only need to install Bonjour and not iTunes. iTunes adds nothing and consumes your diskspace!

Finally, thanks for producing AirPrint windows service, it now works a treat!

Thanks for the input. My printer is a network attached printer, but it is in the local printers list of the server, not a TS/RD mapped printer. I think that the issue is Active Directory: it's treating the AD guest Account differently from the Local guest account. Unfortunately, you can't turn on the local guest account when AD is active.

Any other thoughts out there?

If I have to create a virtual machine running XP just to serve out AirPrint, I will, but I'd rather not, ya know?

What about using another computer on the network that isn't the active directory server? Should be able to create local accounts on those that AirPrint can use. Or the VM as you say.

I have this working. Thanks for the instructions.

Any way to do this without the guest account? I'd rather not have it turned on.

No. How can u tell you have it enabled otherwise? Nothing has changed for me.

Hmm.

Windows XP, Airprint service started fine, printer shared out, Bonjour service started, and its not picking the printer up at all on the iDevices.

Any ideas?

----------

Its ok I sorted it..

I have one of the absolutely useless at NATting Virgin Media Super Hubs.

A reboot of the router fixed it for me.

Server 2008 Stuff

Folks,

I've just installed the solution on my Windows 7 machine and the procedure works. My guess is that something in the solution treats the Active Directory "Guest" account differently than a local PC "Guest" account. Everything is definitely enabled and directions spot-on followed on the AD server, but alas, no joy.

Any further thoughts?

Thumbs up Most excellent solution

Dear all
I shared everyone's frustrations with Apple killing off the Print Apps. So I followed the instructions for the modified AirPrint with one variant, I had to use my normal login not Guest in AirPrint. Voila, it worked on my IPAD, my wife's IPAD, my IPHONE.

the solution is so good I can actually live with the concept that my computer needs to be on to print.

Well done
(sorry takeshi74 a typo!)

How would you propose printing to a printer that isn't on?

Thanks!

Everyone,
Thanks for the help!
Works great!
Took a while to find that I had to enter a client pin into my BelkinLan router but then it worked like a champ!
Thanks again,
Mike

double reboot required to start Airprint

Dear Jason
I had Airprint working perfectly last night. Shut down my computer then restarted the next day. Nothing worked. Opened AirPrint installer and none of the settings I had saved the night before had "stuck" so had to update which then required a restart (twice) before it worked.

Any ideas to ensure settings stay between restarts?

Duno, my settings stayed and it still works.

As it lives in the program files directory maybe turn off UAC and/or run the configure app as administrator. Program files is a protected directory and general users can't change things in it, so it might not save.

What I did with mine is create a specific PC account for airprint rather than enable the guest account. You can set up the service to use an account called AirPrint.
