Correct.
I have applied the GPO to the user OU and not the computer OU.  My GPO for point and print is working fine for Vista but not Windows 7.

If you look in the second link read through the posts you need to compile the GPO from a Windows 7 machine by using RSAT to see that information I believe

I have been able to install RSAT on my Windows 7 pc and using Group Policy Editor can now create a Point and Print entry on my local pc unser Computer Configuration. However, still not sure how to do the next step of creating a GPO from my workstation.

Still no entry for Point and Print for my GPMC GPO for Computer Configuration \ Printers for Point and Print for Windows 7.
I have RSAT on my Windows 7 box, and have enable Group Policy Management on it as well to access my domain GPO's.

So, you do or don't see the option under Computer Configuration?

We did not have the Windows 7 group policy file in our store. Once that was copied up we were able to setup point and print for computer configuration. Works great!

Once the Windows 7 ADMX files were copied to the Group Policy store everything worked. See below Microsoft article.
