Go into the folder and “Right-Click” on the Kickoff file and select the “Run as Administrator” option.  Note:  if you just double click on the file you will get an error message reminding you to run as an administrator.


You will get a message asking if you want to allow the program to run.  Allow the program to run.


The program will now run and it may take several minutes, Possibly 5 or even 10 minutes to complete.  Please be patient.


When it is completed a message saying printers installed will display.  Select ok and the message boxes should go away.


Check your computers Printers and Devices and you should find the requested printers now exist.


Please do not make any Physics Printers your “Default” printer.  You are to use these printers for Physic Course Related Work ONLY!
