Having installed several printers on an XP pro workstation (from Novell NDPS printers), I find the printer names cannot be changed. This was not the case under Win98 or Win2K clients, where in control panel/printers I could right-click and find 'rename' as an option. In XP this option simply does not appear. It's a nuisance because the printer names seen in applications have names like \\DM-TREE\despatch_invoice.printer_port1.main which is offputting to people normally used to seeing far more user-friendly names. I dont know if this is common to all XP pro - that you cannot rename printers, or if it is the Novell client getting it's fingers jammed in the registry? A poke around the registry reveals lots and lots of places where these names (as above) appear, and so I could probably change them if I knew which keys would not break the connection to the drivers, etc.... anyone ever done this?
