10: How to elevate Print driver installation using PolicyPak Least Privilege Manager?

Printui.dll is the executable file that contains the functions to install a Print driver. Today PolicyPak can elevate a Control Panel applet, and it can be .CPL or .DLL files. But we cannot elevate a .DLL file alone, it’s simply not possible.

In this KB we will demonstrate how a non-admin user can install print driver on its own, by elevating a rundll32.exe process using PPLPM.

Using PolicyPak Least Privilege Manager, elevate the rundll32.exe, and include a command-line argument to elevate a specific DLL. Just like shown in below screenshot.

Rule to elevate rundll32.exe by PATH and COMMAND LINE (when rundll32.exe runs a DLL, the DLL path is specified on the command line)
