LaunchPad has Ricoh MPC45 and MPC35 based printers/copiers installed in at all sites. They are distributed around the buildings to ensure all users have a printer nearby.
These printers support nearly all versions of Windows, Mac, Android, iOS including AirPrint. Printing can be done directly from nearly any device and users can set up their own configuration on the printer console using various Android Apps.

Basic PC Setup
Step 1 – Install the Installer of the Installer
(Yes I kid you not, Ricoh have created a process that requires an Installer of the Installer of the Installer… but don’t give up hope, it’s actually pretty straightforward.)
Click on the link below to locate the Ricoh Device Software Manager – this streamlines installing the drivers on Windows.
On this page, find the ‘Go to download site’ text and click on Download.
Under ‘Device Software Manager’ click on ‘Download’
(This should have already detected your Windows version, but change it if necessary.)
Click on ‘I accept the agreement’ (who reads it anyway…) and click on ‘Install’.
This downloads the second Installer and runs it.
Click on ‘Next>’
It’s up to you, but we elect not to participate in their program. Click ‘Next>’.
Choose ‘Run Driver Installer’ and click ‘Finish’
(This will run the third and final Installer…)
Step 2 – Actually Installing the Driver…
Once the Installer and checked for the latest version, it should ask you to accept their License agreement. Click ‘I Agree’ and then ‘Next’.
Choose ‘Networked’ and then click ‘Next’.
You should see a list of LaunchPad printers appear (compare the IP Addresses to the list at the top of this article).
– you’ll need to refer to this later.
Choose any of the LaunchPad printers (ideally the closest to you() and click ‘Next’.
Once the driver is installed, click on ‘Finish’.
You can run through the entire process again from Step 2 by clicking the ‘Driver Installer’ short-cut created on your desktop
