stop specific printers from redirecting on terminal server

Posted on 2009-02-12

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.

    Accepted Solution

    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.
