Follow the steps below to deploy a Celiveo Virtual Printer on a user’s workstation:

  1. Download the Virtual Printer deployment package.
  2. Install the Virtual Printer on a user’s workstation.
  3. Silent installation
  4. Install Physical Printers for direct print.

1. Download Virtual Printer Deployment Package

  1. In the Web Admin, select the Celiveo Virtual Printer.
  2. Click .
    The Virtual Printer Deployment Package downloads.


In some cases, the Windows Defender antivirus identifies Celiveo Virtual Printer as a threat.

We have submitted the file to Microsoft for a malware analysis who confirmed this was a false positive as proven by the reports below:

To avoid this problem, make sure that you add Celiveo to the Windows Defender antivirus exclusion list. To do so, add the “C:\Program Files\Celiveo” folder to the exclusion list :

Celiveo software executable files are verified virus/malware using eSET Nod32, then digitally signed, and therefore can’t be patched at a later stage by a virus without triggering a signature failure alert.

If you receive an invalid signature alert, do not run the application as it means software has modified the binary file.

Recent versions of Windows Defender wrongly report some clean obfuscated .Net assemblies as a threat, this is a false positive.
Would you face that issue, we strongly recommend you try another anti-virus to get a confirmation before considering that detection as accurate.
