Printer Redirection server 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Here's the thing.

    I'm running Windows server 2016. I have three users which concted via RDP. The local printers redirect fine, but...

    When I try to print from a specific application, it not print to default redirected printer, but to another one which is default for server, not for client machine.

    In registry there is

    1.HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows:Device - Print to PDF


    2.HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\SessionDefaultDevices\S-1-5-5-0-3868501870 - The name of default client redirected printer.

    So the application try to print to printer from point 1, not to printer from point 2.

    How can I set the printer from point 1 to get the name of printer from point 2?

    The printer from point 2 has different name each time I log on to server. So I can't set it manually.

  • The printers must be the correct  type and use a universal driver.  Just be sure the RDP listener is configure correctly and that the client connection is configured correctly,

    This question belongs in RDS forum.  It is not a scripting issue.
