Enable iOS AirPrint Service In Windows 7 For Wireless Printing

If your iDevice (iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad) is running iOS 4.2 or higher, you must be familiar with an intrinsic printing feature called AirPrint, which offers wireless printing of documents over Wi-Fi connection. This feature directly supports HP’s ePrint range whilst some printers from non-supported vendors are also reported to be working seamlessly via Windows and Mac. Today we’re bringing a detailed walkthrough to enable AirPrint on Windows 7. Before getting started, you need to configure your printer as shared in Windows, also make sure that you have latest iTunes installed on your system.

First off, download the AirPrint ZIP package (download link is provided at the bottom of the article) and unpack its content into C:/Program Files. If you’re using Windows 64-bit edition, you need to unpack the archive into C:/Program Files (x86) folder.

Once the content is extracted, open Command Processor with administrative privileges (type CMD in Windows Run Console ) and execute following commands.

For x64 system

sc.exe create AirPrint binPath= “C:\Program Files (x86)\AirPrint\airprint.exe -s” depend= “Bonjour Service” start= auto

sc.exe start AirPrint

For x86 system

sc.exe create AirPrint binPath= “C:\Program Files\AirPrint\airprint.exe -s” depend= “Bonjour Service” start= auto

sc.exe start AirPrint

When the AirPrint service is initiated, the Windows Firewall will prompt you to allows access, click Allow Access after enabling option to permit only private / home networks. Now, you’re good to go, open any document in your iOS device and tap Print option to verify the newly deployed AirPrint service in Windows.

The AirPrint installers supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
