If the short install name feature is used, installing a printer agent with an associated Universal Printer Driver (UPD) to a Windows 7 workstation will take 4-5 minutes to install. If the word "DEFAULT" is used for the short install name,  the printer installs quickly.


This issue is fixed in the iPrint client for Windows version 5.60 or newer.
