LPT1 Printer Redirection - Default

Hello,

I am trying to force LPT1 to be the default printer on a Windows 2008 32-bit server.  The port is redirecting but because the session ID changes, when we set the default to the LPT1 printer, it loses it the next time the user logs in and maps a different printer.  The user doesnt realize the change and prints to the wrong printer.

Is there a way to force LPT1 to be default even though the session ID changes at every log in?

ok try this:
http://www.edugeek.net/forums/windows/17877-default-printer-batch-file.html

go to the above site, there you will find a vbscript to set default printer, now put that vbscript on
startmenu\startup and whenever the system logs on, the vbscript will set the printer as default. I think that would work like a charm

If you need to hide the startup windows google "Hidden start" and you are good to go...etc..
