Airprint iOS 5/6 for Windows


Working with iOS4 is different from the new iOS 5/6, Airprint needs to be reconfigured to make it work under iOS 5/6 environment.

If you haven’t installed Airprint, check out my previous blog.

Download Airprint file here, (Courtesy of Richard) the link I had from my previous blog might be not working anymore.

* Make sure you are an administrator on the PC.

* Click Start > Run > type “sc.exe delete Airprint”

Then: Click Start > Run > type “sc.exe create AirPrint binPath= “C:\Program Files\AirPrint\airprint.exe -R _ipp._tcp,_universal -s” depend= “Bonjour Service” start= auto”

This will reinstall the AirPrint service with the needed extra option.

Start the service with:
Click Start > Run > type “sc.exe start Airprint”

You will be able to print wirelessly from any iDevice running iOS 5/6.

* If there is a lock icon next to the printer name, you need to enable the guest account.

I got it working on Windows Server 2003 with an HP LaserJet  3015 printing from iOS5 and iOS6 devices.
