A question about Windows 7, network printers, non-persistent VDI workstations, and AppSense :O RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here's the symptoms:

    I log into my non-persistent Windows 7 VM, presented by XenDesktop.  Initially my Devices and Printers applet only shows four printers (Adobe PDF, Fax, Microsoft XPS Doc Writer, and Send to OneNote 2013.)

    I can wait for twenty minutes....nothing changes.

    The first time I run an application that can print (NotePad, PowerPoint) none of my network printers are available (note that I have confirmed the necessary registry keys have been captured and copied to HKCU by AppSense.)

    After that first run, Devices and Printers applet updates to show the network printer I mapped in the last session.

    Anyone seen this before?
