Technical requirements

ThinPrint Client Windows can be installed onto the following systems:

  • Windows 11, 10

Note! In case the print protocol ICA is to be used, please install the Citrix Receiver before the ThinPrint Client. Make sure that both the Citrix Receiver and the ThinPrint Client are installed with the same permissions, i. e. the same user account – e. g. both as administrator. The ThinPrint Client can also be installed without administrator permissions, in which case only the user with whose account the Client was installed will be able to print with ThinPrint.
