Eric,
The Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Policies\Local
Policies\User Rights Assignments\Load and unload Device drivers setting.
Add Power Users to this.
 
At this point, per the 3rd paragraph in the Cause section of the article,
you should be able to use the Add printer wizard.

Two things we had to do:

1) Make make the user a Power User

2) Add the Power Users to the "Load and unload device drivers" user right

 

Try that

If I read that correctly there is nothing you can do about it.  I have to
run the add new printer to install a printer as a user.  However if I go
to add new printer wizard the add local printer is greyed out and cant be
selected do you know how to fix that?

I have a windows 2003 server and my group policy is like I want it except
when a user plugs in a printer via usb the system pops up a logon box that
sais you must be a member of the admins to perform this action.  What can
I change to enable anyone to be able to install a printer via usb?

Thanks

Eric
