I am not a coder, so this may be a bigger request than I realize. I often need to be able to create a print pool of 2 printers or more. The printers are the same brand and model and have the same driver. This pool is not in a stationary setting. I mix and match the computers and printers all of the time. This is in windows 7. I am able to create a print pool as shown at this link.http://www.pctips300...ooling-on-windows-7/
I am using a 3rd party program to create and print the documents. It is not one of the windows programs.
The problems I encounter are:
1) When I have the two printers connected, and the print pooling set up and I want to print more than one copy of a document. The print pool sends them all to printer 1, instead of distributing the documents between the printers. If I go in a do a reprint it generally sends the reprint to the second printer.
2) The next time I use the computer, with one of the original 2 printers, or a 3rd identical printer it holds onto the print pooling settings and I have to uninstall and reinstall the print driver.
I have checked with another user and she has the same problem. So I don't think the problem is something I am doing incorrectly.
I would like to be able to attach 2 or more printers of the same model and driver and when the priint job is sent - it automatically spreads the jobs between the printers. In most cases I am printing one page documents.
I have scoured the internet and have not found anything quite like waht I want. I am told Mac has a built in system for this. But I am using windows computers.
Thank you in advance
