What is Xerox PrintingScout?  (from Xerox)

The Xerox PrintingScout application gives you a real-time link to your printer status and can help you resolve most typical printer problems.


Xerox PrintingScout is a software program developed by Xerox. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The setup package generally installs about 75 files and is usually about 2.49 MB (2,612,144 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 73% of users of Xerox PrintingScout come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and Netherlands.
