Under our current 10.11 non admin build for junior school students, whenever a student attempts to print they get the following error:
You don't have permission to use the application "PrinterProxy"
The PrinterProxy file that is trying to open is located in the following location:
/Users has been restricted from running any Applications on these machines.
I am guessing this is a El capitan/10.11 issue because I have not seen this is any of our older builds.
Has anyone else had this issue ?

I've still been scripting sym link and printers to other locations... and had teacher question something which made me test if it's still necessary and I no longer get printerproxy prompts anymore even without allowlisting anything in /Users.
If I copy the printerproxy executable to my desktop, it is blocked, but not when it's in the native printer location. I put a ticket in with Apple who said "According to my research an exception is made to allow the PrintProxy binaries. I know there were issues in the past where this payload would block users from printing. "
Just replying back in case others are still scripting this thinking it's still necessary, it may not be. We are going to do some more testing here.
