How to install an Uluro Print Server

Here's what has to be done on the windows print server to install the Uluro services that will allow Uluro to drive printing and print file generation from the Print Server:

1. Verify that the Print server has the same user account that runs the Uluro services on it, and that the print server can communicate with both SQL and the Submit directory on the app server.

2. Install all of the fonts from the App server on the new Print server, and make sure that you reboot afterwards.

3. Create a folder on the print server that will house the services.

4. Copy the following items from the Uluro "Programs" folder on the app server to the folder you created on the print server: RPPrintapp.exe, RPPrintsrv.exe, UluroPQSvr.exe, uQueFile.exe, and DBServices.ini.

5. After copying these to the folder, open an Administrator command prompt and point it to the folder that has the services in it by using the "CD" command to change directories. It is important that the Command window be opened as administrator, because it will not have the permissions required to install the services otherwise.

The "SQLOLEDB" database provider is not compatible with TLS 1.2 and above. If the internal network is set to use TLS, then the MSOLEDB driver may need to be installed.

At time of writing, the driver can be downloaded from Microsoft here:

The SetDB.exe program may need to be run to set the new connection parameters for the services.

6. The services can be installed with the following commands:

RPPrintsrv.exe /Install /Silent
uluroPQSvr.exe /Install /Silent

7. Open the services list in windows, and change the startup type to "Automatic (Delayed start)", and change the logon user to the same one that the services on the App server have.

8. Stop the same services on the app server and disable them.

9. Start the new services on the Print server.

Keep in mind that Uluro uses the printers from where the print service is running, so when you install the print server you need to add all of your printers to it, then update all printers in uPrint and, if applicable, Print Manager (UluroPM.exe).
