Specify how AutoConnect tables shall be processed

This policy defines which tables AutoConnect will use to create the printers. If both tables are used, you can also define which default printer has priority.

The priority for the default printer only comes into effect when a) AutoConnect creates the default printer and b) storage of the default printer in the user settings configuration file for AutoConnect is disabled.

For a) the policy "Disable that AutoConnect sets the default printer" has to be deactivated or not configured.

For b) the policy "Specify storing of printer properties in user settings file" must not set the values StoreUserSessionSettings = 5 ("Save and restore user-defined default printer") or StoreUserSessionSettings = 7 "Save and restore user-defined default printer and printer preferences").

Abbreviations:
DPM = Dynamic Printer Matrix
MAP = Map Additional Printers
