iCapture feature does not exist in iPrint Client 6.0

Environment

Novell iPrint

Situation

The iCapture feature exists with Windows 7 32 bit with iPrint Client version 5.99, but not with Windows 7 32 bit with iPrint Client version 6.0.

Resolution

Install the iPrint Client version 5.99 or earlier.

Cause

Novell decided to remove iCapture from the 6.0 version of the iPrint Client because:
  • There is the potential for software security vulnerabilities to exist in the iCapture code.
  • Demand for this ability is low.
  • iCapture (the capturing of lpt ports) can't work with 64 bit architecture
  • iCapture's most common use case is to support 16 bit apps.  16 bit apps are increasingly rare.
  • If iCapture is essential, the iPrint Client version 5.99 can still be installed.
