Matching ShadowPrint And Windows Credentials


By default ShadowPrint is installed as a Network Service allowing it to run with no additional credentials. In some cases, ShadowPrint does not have access to the printers it needs unless it runs with the credentials of a user who logs into the computer. This will explain how to run ShadowPrint with a Windows user's credentials. These same steps can be used if the user changes their Window's password so that ShadowPrint and the Windows credentials match correctly.
