The release station is a standalone component of PaperCut that allows users to log in and release jobs from a hold/release queue. A release station is generally set up next to a printer to ensure that the user is present when their job is printed.

C:\Cache\, and the zero install method of running it directly from the network. If the release station is running from the network, it will need to be installed locally on a system for the duration of enabling debug. It is possible to enable debug by editing the config file on the server’s
PCRelease network share, but this would enable debug for every release station running from the network, and may create a lot of debugging output.
