Installation
Installation
Define the correct installation method
Definition
According to your network architecture, you can use different methods to install the Océ WPD2
on a user workstation. Océ recommends you use:
• the [Add (a) printer] method in a Client/Server configuration
• the [Setup] method when the workstation is directly connected to the printer (peer to peer,
server).
Note Attention Caution
NOTE:
Contact your local network administrator to know your network configuration and to get
information about the printer to address.
Client /Server configuration : use the [Add (a) printer] method on the Client
In a Client/Server configuration, you connect the Client workstation to the print server. Océ
recommends to:
• Use the [Add Printer Wizard ] (see Install the printer driver with the Add Printer Wizard on
page 17) to install a [Network printer]. As the wizard installs elements coming from the print
server, make sure that the latest version of the driver is installed on the print server (contact
your local system administrator).
• If you need to uninstall the printer, click [Delete] to delete it (see Uninstall after a setup.exe
installation on page 33).
Peer-to-peer or Server configurations : use the [Setup] method
When the workstation is directly connected to the printer (through a network for example), Océ
recommends to:
• Use the [Setup] method, from the executable file (<driver>.exe) downloaded from the web (see
Retrieve the installation files on page 19).
This method:
- automatically detects the new printer (latest Océ printer models).
- automatically configures the printer port.
• If you need to uninstall the printer, use the [Uninstall] shortcut. [The uninstall shortcut is
available from the Start Menu.]
You can also use the [Add/Remove Programs] Windows utility (see Uninstall after a Client
installation from a network shared printer ('Point and Print') on page 34).

Install with the Add-(a)-printer method
Install with the Add-(a)-printer method
Install the printer driver with the [Add Printer Wizard ]
If you are in a Client/Server network configuration, Océ recommends to install the Océ WPD
driver on the user workstation using the [Add (a) printer] method. In this case, the version of the
driver installed on the workstation is the same as the one on the print server.
Note Attention Caution
IMPORTANT:
Always install the driver with the same method on a same workstation. Use either the [Setup]
method or the [Add (a) printer] method.
Always keep only one version of the printer driver on a same workstation. Be very careful if
your network contains several servers. The printer driver version must be the same across the
network you use.
If not, we cannot guarantee the driver's correct behavior.
NOTE:
Océ WPD version 1.x and Océ WPD 2 version 2.x can be installed and run on the same
workstation. There are 2 different products.
NOTE:
The [Add Printer Wizard ] is slightly different from one Windows Operating System version to
another, but the global procedure remains the same. The procedure below describes an
installation via the [Add Printer Wizard ] under Windows XP.

Change the location of the spool directory
Change the location of the spool directory
Question
How can I change the location of the spool directory?
Answer
By default the Spool directory is located in: C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Printers. This
location is within the System partition which is sometimes rather full. You thus have the
possibility to move the spool directory to another location (in order to place it on a larger
partition, for instance).
You can define the new path to the spool folder.
NOTE:
Make sure you are logged onto the workstation with administrator rights (and logged onto the
server in case of a client/server configuration).

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
Installation problems
Definition
We recommend you define the correct installation method, according to your network
architecture (see Define the correct installation method on page 16).
Note Attention Caution
IMPORTANT:
Always install the driver with the same method on a same workstation. Use either the [Setup]
method or the [Add (a) printer] method.
Always keep only one version of the printer driver on a same workstation. Be very careful if
your network contains several servers. The printer driver version must be the same across the
network you use.
If not, we cannot guarantee the driver's correct behavior.
NOTE:
You can have several printers and you do not know how the drivers were installed. In this case,
we advise you to uninstall all the printer drivers before you add new ones.
Recommendations
We recommend you use:
• the [Add (a) printer] method in a Client/Server configuration on a user workstation
• the [Setup] method when the workstation is directly connected to the printer (peer to peer)

This utility removes all the leftovers of previous unclean installations of Océ WPD printer drivers
from a workstation. It applies to both printer drivers: WPD 1.x, and WPD2 v2.x.
Use the Cleaning Tool:
• if you encounter problems at Océ WPD printer driver installation.
• if the installation method used to install the previous Océ WPD printer driver is unknown.
• if the “Setup” and the “Add-a-printer” installation methods were used on the same
workstation to install the Océ WPD printer driver.
• after you uninstall the Océ WPD printer driver due to incorrect behavior.
You make sure that no problem remains on your workstation.
Océ WPD Cleaning Tool utility

Absence of printer information
Absence of printer information
Question
How do you retrieve printer information after printer driver installation?
Answer
There are two possible methods:
1. Open the TCP/IP port number 65200 on the firewall to allow the printer information retrieval
process.
2. Check the security level of the Security Pack with your system administrator on the printer
controller.
The printer information is not available if the Security Pack security level is set to “High” on
the printer controller.

Solve the absence of printer information
Solve the absence of printer information
Information retrieval is enabled during the installation of the printer driver.
However, there are cases where information retrieval cannot be established during installation. If
this is the case, a user with the administrator rights must enable it manually.
Manually activate information retrieval
A user with administrator rights can manually enable the retrieval of printer information.
To activate automatic retrieval of printer information, see Configure printer information with the
Connect button on page 32
In such cases, the printer options are retrieved and updated each time you open Océ WPD2.
Troubleshooting
For automatic printer information retrieval, make sure that:
• a hostname or IP address is defined to identify and connect to the printer
• the printer is turned ON
• the printer is connected to the network
• the print controller is not associated with the “High” security pack

Where are print settings defined?
Purpose
When you print a document, you use an application in which you can define the print settings for
this document. But you can also define the print settings from the Océ WPD2.
Here are some tips about where to define your print settings. With these tips, you make sure that
all the print settings are taken into account at the time of printing.
Print settings exchanged between the printer driver and the application
The following print settings can be defined either from within your application or from the Océ
WPD2 Properties windows:
• page size: list, selection and orientation
• paper source
• copies and collate
• color mode
• print-file resolution
The values of these print settings are always identical in the application and in the Océ WPD2
Properties.
NOTE:
Some applications have a limitation: they do not retrieve the number of copies you define from
the printer driver. This is the case of AutoCAD and MS Office applications, for instance.
1. We advise you to define the print settings as follows.
86
Regular print settings
Specific print settings from a document
Advice
We recommend that you define your regular print settings as the default print settings for the printer.
We recommend that you define the print
settings that are specific to a document
directly from within the application.
Example
For instance, you can define the behavior
of the Océ Preview as a default setting.
For instance, define the number of copies
you want from the application.
How to

Question
With Océ WPD2, why is the number of copies set in the driver not taken into account in AutoCAD
2000 and higher?
Answer
Set the number of copies directly from the application. This value overwrites the value set in the
driver.
1. Open the File - Plot window.
2. In the [Plot device] tab, set the number of copies.

Troubleshooting
Check optimizations for AutoCAD-based applications
Purpose
The following warning message can display when plotting a file from AutoCAD. It means that the
optimizations for AutoCAD were not correctly installed during the driver setup or the driver
upgrade.
Warning message during upgrade
Warning: [The printer driver needs to update or copy an optimized dll for AutoCAD. You don’t
have the user rights for this action, please contact your System Administrator.]
Pre-requisites to get the correct optimizations for AutoCAD 2000i and higher
Make sure you have the System Administrator rights on your computer to install:
• the Océ WPD2 optimisations,
• the Océ WPD2 upgrade.
NOTE:
See also Get AutoCAD optimizations under Windows Vista on page 91.
1. Launch your AutoCAD application.
2. Select File - Plot.
3. Select the printer that uses the Océ WPD2.
The application automatically loads and launches the needed file.
4. Check that the mention 'Optimized driver - by Océ' is displayed.

Get AutoCAD optimizations under Windows Vista
Question
I am an administrator on my Windows Vista workstation. But when I plot under AutoCAD, I get
the following warning message: [The printer driver needs to update or copy an optimized dll for
AutoCAD. You don’t have the user rights for this action, please contact your System
Administrator.].
This happens when AutoCAD is installed on a workstation AFTER the Océ WPD2 or when Océ
WPD2 is installed on a client workstation running AutoCAD.
The printer driver needs to update the Optimization DLL for AutoCAD. To allow this action, the
system needs the writing rights in the \AutoCAD\Drv repository.
Answer
Under Windows Vista, administrators are considered as standard users unless the system
prompts them to elevate their rights (except if you enabled the 'Administrator account' in the
\Local Policies\Security Options).
The Océ WPD2 cannot prompt users to change their rights. Thus, when the driver tries to copy
the up-to-date Optimization DLL for AutoCAD (which acts as a plug-in), Windows Vista refuses. A
warning message pops up, as for a standard user profile.
NOTE:
Before you begin, make sure the AutoCAD application is closed.
NOTE:
You can also use this procedure with the other Windows platforms if the Optimization DLL for
AutoCAD does not update correctly.
1. On the workstation, open the following folder:
• For Windows x32 platforms: Windows - System32 - Spool - drivers - w32x86 - 3
• For Windows x64 platforms: Windows - System32 - Spool - drivers - x64 - 3
2. Make a right click on the executable file "ocegdicp.exe" and select “Run as administrator”.
3. Click [Allow] to confirm the action.
The executable file copies the Optimization DLL for AutoCAD in the correct repository.
4. In Programs Files - AutoCAD - Drv, check the presence of the Optimisation DLL
"ocegdix.hdi".
If so, the update applies to all the AutoCAD versions installed on the workstation.

Addendum: Océ WPD Cleaning
Tool in brief
What is Océ WPD Cleaning Tool
What is Océ WPD Cleaning Tool
Océ WPD Cleaning Tool is a standalone executable.
Its name is ocewpd_clean.exe.
This executable requires no installation. You can run it from a USB key.
Océ WPD Cleaning Tool is available for download from the international corporate website.
Go to the Océ WPD2 page. From the Downloads/Drivers and Software tab, select the Utilities type
and search for the Cleaning Tool.
Definition
The goal of the Cleaning Tool is to provide a troubleshooting utility.
This utility removes all the leftovers of previous unclean installations of Océ WPD printer drivers
from a workstation. It applies to both printer drivers: WPD 1.x, and WPD2 v2.x.
Use the Cleaning Tool:
• if you encounter problems at Océ WPD printer driver installation.
• if the installation method used to install the previous Océ WPD printer driver is unknown.
• if the “Setup” and the “Add-a-printer” installation methods were used on the same
workstation to install the Océ WPD printer driver.
• after you uninstall the Océ WPD printer driver due to incorrect behavior.
You make sure that no problem remains on your workstation.
NOTE:
Océ WPD Cleaning Tool ONLY applies to the Océ WPD printer drivers (WPD 1.x and WPD2
v2.x). Any other printer drivers, from Océ or another company, remain unchanged.
Example of a 'WPD-clean' workstation
When your workstation is “WPD-clean”, there are no leftovers from previous unclean Océ WPD
printer driver installations. You can install a new version of the printer driver.

Example of a workstation that is not “WPD-clean”
If your workstation is not “WPD-clean”, Océ WPD Cleaning Tool detects any leftovers from
previous unclean Océ WPD installations.
Leftovers can be:
• Océ WPD printer driver instances no longer associated with a printer
• Océ WPD-related files on your hard drive
• Océ WPD-related keys in the registry
Use Océ WPD Cleaning Tool to clean your workstation. If not, the printer driver installation and
functionality are not guaranteed.

Use Océ WPD Cleaning Tool on a client workstation
Use Océ WPD Cleaning Tool on a client workstation
You can run Océ WPD Cleaning Tool from any location of a workstation.
There is no need to install it from a workstation. You can even run it from a USB key.
In this section, we describe the procedure to run the Cleaning Tool on a workstation.
In a client/server configuration, once the client workstations are 'WPD-clean', you can run the
Cleaning Tool on the server. To do so, use the same procedure.
Note Attention Caution
NOTE:
Multiple users on a workstation
If several users can log on the workstation, make sure all those users run the Cleaning Tool on
that same workstation. Some leftovers to clean are proper to each user: temporary files,
registry keys, etc.
Illustration
1. Double-click the 'Ocewpd_clean.exe' executable file to run the Cleaning Tool.
If you have
Then
User rights
The Cleaning Tool notices you that the items marked with a red cross
cannot currently be cleaned. This can only be done by a person who
has Administrator rights.
The items marked with a green checkmark can be cleaned.

Under Windows Vista, the Cleaning Tool detects all the
unused driver packages located in the ‘Driver Store’.
Only a user with the elevated Administrator rights can
clean those leftovers.
Click [Remove packages] to remove them.
2. Click the [Clean] button to clean the workstation.
3. If several users can log on the workstation, repeat steps 1 and 2 with each user.
You can now run the Cleaning Tool on your server, or install a new instance of the Océ WPD
printer driver.
