It is possible to migrate network printers with PCT?

Solution



PCT has the ability to migrate printers across all operating systems. If you are migrating to the same Windows operating system version, PCT uses the printer drivers from the source computer to install the printer on the destination computer.

If you are migrating network printers to a different operating system, PCT can add network printer on destination machine only if drivers of the printer are already installed on destination machine. PCT will not be able to migrate the network printer settings on which drivers are not installed.

PCT does not install drivers for printers; it can add printers and migrate settings.

 

If you need more information about printers please read PC Transplant Professional Edition Reference Guide or call Tech Support.
