I assume that it will configure Windows machines to find the printer
on the network. I don't have a Windows machine to check. When the user
configures the printer in the router's print server, the last step in
the process is to download this EXE from the router and to run it on
the windows machine.

There is a web interface for configuring the printer to talk with the
print servers, however to configure Windows to know where the printer
is one needs to run the EXE file.

In KDE 3.5.0 I could enter the IP address of the router as the address
of the print server and the printer worked fine. Not so in KDE 4.2.2.
