[Legacy] Setting the currency sign in the PaperCut Quota Web Tools interface

KB Home   |   [Legacy] Setting the currency sign in the PaperCut Quota Web Tools interface

Note: These instructions also affect the currency format used in “print job denied” messages sent to users via “winpopup”

Note: This article applies to PaperCut Quota only.

PaperCut’s web interface extracts the date and currency formatting from the system’s default Regional Options/Settings as defined under the Control Panel.

For this reason, you need to ensure that the system default regional settings are configured to display the currency, date and numbers in the format for your region.

The regional settings in the control panel usually only apply to the currently logged in user. But because the PaperCut Web Interface runs in the background as a Windows Service, you need to change the default regional settings for the system account.

Changing the setting on Windows 2003 and Windows XP

  1. In the Control Panel, open “Regional and Language Options”
  2. Select the “Regional Options” tab, and set the appropriate locale
  3. Select the “Advanced” tab Press the advanced button
  4. Enable the option to “Apply all settings to the current user account and to the default user profile” at the bottom of the screen.
  5. Reboot the server so settings come into effect

Changing the setting on Windows 2000

  1. In the Control Panel, open “Regional Options”
  2. Select the “General” tab
  3. Press the “Set Default” button at the bottom left of the screen
  4. Select the required system locale
  5. Reboot the server so settings into effect
