Citrix Client-Can't Print

Encountering issue with printing from both CItrix published applications and desktop.  When selecting print from MS Word, MS Outlook (and any other applications the application) proceeds to lockup application and printer output fails.  Note, this occurs with only one client (the remainder of the clients at this site have no print issues).  Also, all PC hardware is identical. I've removed and reinstalled the Citrix Client v11.0.0.5357.  I've removed and added the printer thru Windows (printing from Windows is not problematic).

Local (client) or network printer?
If network printer, try it from the console of the citrix server and see what happens.

Does it work ok from the console of the terminal server?
Just to clarify, the network printer is connected directly from the terminal session to the print server, and not via the client?

I deleted the printer on the client (windows xp).  Added printer by local-TCP/IP port.  Tested ouput in citrix-no further problems noted.  Any thoughts?

Still not clear on what route your printing is taking from citrix session to print server.
I'd consider best practice to be the following: If you have a network print server then get your terminal server sessions to print directly to it.
i.e. the printer your users should be printing to will be "your-printer on your-print-server" and NOT "your-printer (from your-client) in session nn"
This is especially good practice if your print server is housed in the same server room as your terminal servers (or at least on a decent Gb switched network. Otherwise the print data is being sent from terminal server to client pc and then back to print server again.

I'm thinking it is the user profile as well. Have that person log completely out of Citrix, rename their profile on the Citrix server, then have them log in again. Copy anything they need over from the old profile.
