Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Services) - Remote Application / Published App Printing

We'd like to deploy a new application on Thin Clients with Windows Embeded Standard via Remote App (formerly called a Published App).

Everything works great except printing.  The printer selection comes from the Remote App (Terminal) server

We don't want to install all printers at all locations.  Users would never want to search through such a long list (50-100 printers) every time to print.

Question:
What are some ways that we can allow users to launch a Remote App (Published App) from a desktop and still be able to print to the same printer list that shows up on his/her local desktop?

Citrix offers a remote application tool called XenApp that sounds like it would fit your needs. Here's a link:

We don't have Citrix.  But we did find the problem/solution.

This is a cloned server.  The original server had a GP setting to block client printer redirection.

I applied a GP to allow printer redirection.
