After sending this message I thought of one other critical difference between the selfcheck and administrator logins. We have openkiosk set to run directly as the shell, so explorer doesn't run. And that seems to be the culprit. When I launch openkiosk from the normal explorer shell, then the printing works fine, with no delay before cut. So I think this is solved. Sorry about the noise.

Learn about spoofing<http://aka.ms/LearnAboutSpoofing> Feedback<http://aka.ms/SafetyTipsFeedback> Hello, I'm curious if anyone has run into this and found a solution for it. We use Star TSP100 and TSP600 receipt printers. Our self check machines use the web based self check interface. We use the openkiosk browser to serve up the self check interface on our machines. When I'm logged in as administrator and test out the self check printing a receipt, the receipt prints and cuts all at once. But when using a non privileged user to run openkiosk, there is a 2 second delay at the end of the receipt, before the paper gets cut. This causes users to try and tear out the receipt before it cuts, which sometimes messes up the printer, causing future prints to misfeed back into the printer. It seems like the printer is waiting for more input before it times out and initiates a cut. I've tried giving the selfcheck user profile full permissions to the printer, no change. I've tried putting the selfcheck user in the administrator group, no change. Has anyone run into something like this?
