Post deployment

After you have completed the instructions and deployed to your first workstation, you can return to the add-on card and view the Successful deployments so far counter.

If this is still showing zero, spot-check a few Windows clients to ensure the following:

  1. In Task Manager, check the pc-edgenode-service is running.
    The Windows PC requires this service to perform Edge Mesh activities such as receiving, replicating, or printing jobs if the PaperCut Cloud Service calls upon it.
  2. In Task Manager, check that pc-print-client-service.exe is running.
    This is the print client needed to link the end-user to PaperCut Pocket or Hive and submit jobs via the PaperCut Printer. This process must be running in memory. It provides the functions the user needs to print jobs via the PaperCut Printer.

If either of these are not running, please contact your PaperCut reseller and provide copies of the logs.
