I've had major issues with the UPD in large report environments with
queues getting hung and spooler crashing often. In fact, I've even put
the UPD on the list of "not allowed" drivers on our farm in-house.

Switching to Thinprint resolved these issues totally. That combined with
Rick Mack's little clnspool.bat idea ... I don't EVER have to touch
printers.

Well. The UPD from Citrix (I assume that is what you are talking about)
has
some functionality as far as a UPD. Not bad really. But check out our
Printing White paper (Really the printing chapter from our book) Its
available from Brian Madden's web site.=20

The UPD from citrix is really a couple of HP Drivers that are used for
different types of printers. There's more to it, but its really a fancy
driver with a mapping algorithm. The software like thinprint is totally
different. Check out the paper it has LONG descriptions of the entire
print
process.

Hi List,
=20
Can anyone explain when Thin Print and when the Universal Printer driver
is
used.
So what are the advantages of Thin Print compared to Citrix Universal
Printer driver.
Is UPD good enough for "driverless" printing ? Any issues with UPD in
large
environments ?
=20
With regards,
Ruben Spruijt
