reservation of printers

Post by kosajsk » Tue Jun 11, 2019 12:39 pm

Hello everybody,

beacuse we have a licence for printers we need to block printing from Designer to office printers.
I have found a description for printer reservation as followed:

This option can also be enabled using the product.config file:
Navigate to the System folder.EXAMPLE: %PROGRAMDATA%\NiceLabel\NiceLabel 2019
Make a backup copy of the product.config file.
Open product.config in a text editor. The file has an XML structure.
Add the following lines:
<Configuration>
<Activation>
<ReservePrinters>Example Printer</ReservePrinters>
</Activation>
<Common>
<General>
<ShowOnlyReservedPrinters>True</ShowOnlyReservedPrinters>
</General>
</Common>
</Configuration>Save the file. The Example Printer is reserved.


Please how to specify "Example Printer" ? I have tried network name, IP address but it did not work.
Thanks
