JSI Tip 4739. What privileges must I grant to allow Power Users to install or modify a local printer?

To install or modify a local printer, a user must either be a member of the Administrators group or a member of the Power Users group.

If the user is a member of the Power Users group, they must be granted the Load and unload device drivers right:

Default Domain group policy at Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / User Rights Assignment

or

Local Security Policy at Security Settings / Local Policies / User Rights Assignment.
