Installing a Pscript Minidriver

Last Updated: 9/16/2016

Installation of a Pscript minidriver requires a printer INF file that identifies the minidriver's files. If a printer model is not supported by Microsoft's printer INF file, ntprint.inf, a vendor-supplied INF file is required. The INF file should reference printer INF file data sections and printer INF file install sections, which are defined in ntprint.inf. For a minidriver named abc100, the following INF file entries are typically needed:

[Manufacturer]
"ABC Printers"

[ABC Printers]
"ABC Printer 100 PS" = ABC100.PPD, ABC_Printer_100_PS

[ABC100.PPD]
CopyFiles=@ABC100.ppd       ; PPD file.
DataSection=PSCRIPT_DATA    ; PSCRIPT Data Section
DataFile=ABC100.ppd
Include=NTPRINT.INF         ; Include NTPRINT.INF.
Needs=PSCRIPT.OEM           ; Install PSCRIPT.

If you are providing a user interface plug-in or a rendering plug-in, you need to include the names of these components within your INF file. For information about installing customized code, see Installing Customized Driver Components.
