User client

If you’re a PaperCut IT Administrator, read on!

The client software (pc-client.exe or is optional and is only required if you wish to offer real-time feedback such as account balance, popup messages, and/or popup account selection. It is not used as part of the print control process - all this is implemented on the server-side. The client software is best described as a viewing tool and acts on the direction of server-side logic.

Regardless of your Operating System, more information on the installation process is available in the PaperCut User Client manual section.

On Windows:

During the server installation, PaperCut will set up a read-only network share called PCClient. You will find the client software for Windows, Mac and Linux workstations located in this share. This approach ensures that you have the matching client version always available via this share.
