Configuring multiple users simultaneously (all authentication methods)

To do so, open the command line on the Personal Printing server as an administrator. Then specify the path where the files for Personal Printing have been saved.
C:\Program Files\Personal Printing
- Then enter the following to show the command line parameters for configuring multiple users:
rundll32 TPFMExt.dll UserConfig -help
- A window opens with all commands required to configure multiple users. Use a script to simultaneously configure multiple users.
