Add a driver to a printing server [Windows Server 2012 R2]


Today I will explain how to manually add a driver for your print server.

So at the very beginning I download my driver, I execute it, and it’s just an .exe that asks me to extract data, I say ok:

Then I go to my server manager and go to Tools => Print Management

From the new window I double click on one of my printers of my choice and go to the “Advanced” tab and then “New Driver…”

In the next window select “Have Disk…”

From there we’ll go to the folder we extracted earlier and look for a file with the extension “.inf”

Once selected, you get an overview of the drivers available for installation, select yours and you’re done!
