I'm having an issue where the printers.csv is getting put into %appdata%\Roaming\UniveralPrintProvisioning\Configuration instead of %appdata%\UniveralPrintProvisioning\Configuration which is were it should be according to documentation.   This was working when I first set it up but now it seems to have changed on me even though I didn't change anything in intune.  Any ideas?

I believe the confusion may be around what the OS sets as the value for the %AppData% environment variable.

 

As you've stated, the documentation says the .csv file will be put into

%AppData%\UniversalPrintPrinterProvisioning\Configuration 

folder.  On my machine the value for %AppData% is

C:\>echo %appdata%
C:\Users\jimwu\AppData\Roaming

 

The "Roaming" sub-folder of the "AppData" folder is part of the %AppData% environment variable value.  Hope that clarifies things.

 

Separately, are you having problems with the provisioning tool?
