Having been involved with printer software for a number of years, I have always found it frustrating when changing ports, drivers and/or printers. The windows printer wizards always seem very slow and adds extra steps when you just want to do a simple operation. I initially created Printer Manager to reduce printer wizard usage to a minimum.
Microsoft's print management snap-in for mmc, released with Vista*, did solve the majority of those issues. So there hasn't been much development of Printer Manager since. However there are a few additions that i have recently thought would be useful, so Printer Manager has had an update to get ready for these new features. These new additions may see Printer Manager become a paid for app. A free version will still remain, but will have some of these new features disabled.
Discover more about each printer with SNMP query. Print specific files via the printer, or directly bypassing the printer.
Add printers via either printer wizard, or via printer managers quick add option.
