I understand the trick to getting Remote Desktop printing working is to have the software for the local printer loaded on the machine let's say at work and set as the default.  Here's my caveat, with an HP all in one device, it doesn't matter how many times you install that software it doesn't show up in the printer control panel untill it's physically connected with that USB cable.  Any suggestions/work arounds? And please don't say drag that bad boy from home one time to let it install..

the important thing to have installed is the driver not the software

also make sure that your local printers are set to map under your rdp connection settings

So far it's made no difference, it doesn't show up, all i see are the printers attached to my computer at work.  The box is checked to map local printers.
