Adding HuskyPrint and Papercut to a Windows off-domain computer

Please disconnect from the VPN before you print, as it will prevent the Papercut client from prompting for credentials. You can reconnect when you are done printing.

You can use an automated installer to use the HuskyPrint stations on a personal or off-domain computers (computername.sabu). When you print to HuskyBW or HuskyColor, the print job will be available on the HuskyPrint stations. You can view your transaction history, recent print jobs, and jobs pending release by logging into PaperCut with your Michigan Tech account name and password. You can also add certain networked printers after you run the automated installer.

  1. Verify that you have a personal or off-domain computer. If it is university-owned, find your full computer name. It is considered off-domain if it is a personal computer or if the full computer name is similar to computername.sabu.mtu.edu. (An on-domain computer would be similar to computername.ad.mtu.edu. If that is the case, please use the instructions for adding printers to an on-domain computer.)
  2. Upgrade to or confirm that you have the latest PowerShell version.
  3. Download the print setup script.
  4. Open File Explorer and browse to your Downloads folder. 
  5. Find and right-click the PrinterSetup ZIP file, then select Extract All.
    Note: If you have problems extracting and running the program from the Downloads folder, you can create a folder called "Temp" on the C: drive, then move the PrinterSetup ZIP file into C:\temp
  6. Select Extract in the Windows Extraction Tool. The files that are extracted will appear in a content window.
  7. Select and run the Setup application file.

  9. When the installation is complete, an HTML file will appear with a list of everything the script has completed.
  10. At the end of the installation, you will see a pop-up with Would you like PaperCut to run on startup? Otherwise you'll have to manually start it when you want to print.  We recommend that you have it launch on computer startup.
  11. The printers are now installed and ready to use.
