you must copy the client plugin (listprinters.vbs) from

https://github.com/PluginsOCSInventory-NG/listprinters/tree/master/agent

into the plugin folder of the  ocs-client

C:\Program Files (x86)\OCS Inventory Agent\Plugins

PS: the main download site to download plugins is

https://plugins.ocsinventory-ng.org/
and it is sometimes not to bad if you use the full link to link to a specific site, so everybody can see were your link is going to.

This avoids anxious user from "not clicking" on a link, because they might be thinking there is a virus behind the link.

Kind regards

you say you have installed the plugin to the server "Hi! I installed Listprinters on my OcsInventory server"

so when the clients are windows clients i wrote that you have to put the listprinters.vbs into

C:\Program Files (x86)\OCS Inventory Agent\Plugins

so i don't know what exactly do you mean

Kind regards

Ok I understand, my bad. So it's best to do it through the GPO. I understand that this file must be found on every computer in the network where the printer is connected

listprinters.vbs (client part) must be installed in c:\program files (x86)\ocsinventory agent\plugins directory on each windows client. A computer gpo is a best way for deploying the vbs.

Best regards
