Setting up Print Agent (Windows)

If you are running OSX, please click HERE.

The Print Agent is the utility that runs on your PC in the background, managing all the print jobs sent from GoSweetSpot.

Please read:

  • We DO NOT officially support versions of Windows earlier than Windows 7.
  • If you have multiple users or computers using GSS, you only need this installed on the computer that has the printer plugged into it.
  • If you have a network printer, you might need this on multiple computers.

Instructions:

To install the agent, follow the steps below.

  1. If not already installed, download and install the Microsoft .Net 4.0 Client Runtime from HERE.
  2. Download and install the Print Agent from HERE.
  3. Progress through the normal setup dialogs. The dialog will then automatically close after the setup is complete.
  4. A shortcut (blue icon with white "g") has been created on your Desktop as Print Agent. Please double click to open this. The first time, it can take up to 30 seconds to start up.
  5. Enter your login details to sign-in.

  10. Select the last tab, Setting.

    Check the "Start minimized" and "Start on system startup" check boxes.
