The new Printer Driver Sharing Utility is available with the purchase of a Black Ice Printer Driver for using the shared printer on different Windows operating systems. You can use a shared XP printer driver on a Terminal Server operating system and vice versa. The utility doesn’t support the Windows 9(X) and Windows ME printer drivers.

Software developers can use Black Ice Software’s ePrintAnywhere application to map locally installed Black Ice printer drivers (or just about any other

 printer driver) onto a Windows 2000 or 2003
