I have added a registry key that should allow only default printers on clients to redirect to Terminal Server.  Items such as the Adobe pdf printer are still redirecting.  How can I stop this behavior?

1)  What is the registry edit that you made?

2) Have you rebooted since the registry edit?

I found an article discussing this.  It stated that while there was a hotfix that needed to be applied to the server, the actual registry modifications had to be made on the client.

I did apply the fix mentioned in the article to all workstations that were Windows XP SP2.
To resolve the problem, I updated my Print server to R2.
Thanks for the input.
