Dymo problems on VM machine - print settings not staying

Problem is, i'm trying to keep DYMO printer settings for all users who log into a VM session.  I can set the printer to the correct setting while in vm, and it does stay there for my same user...but if i login as a new user the settings are back to the default ones.  

Normally on an xp machine, i would hook up the dymo get the settings how i want, then copy the user profile to DEFAULT users and that works...but setting up a VM i cant just plug in a dymo when using vsphere that i know of?  Only way i could get it to do that was doing it from my desktop.

There should no difference to the implementation of a Virtual Windows XP Machine to a Physical Windows XP Machine.

"DYMO printer settings for all users who log into a VM session"

How are users connecting to a Virtual Machine? RDP?, VMware View?

Sounds like it is storing the settings in HKCU.  You should be able to export these settings out and import them into the default user profile using regedit.

You would load the default user hive under HKEY_USERS.  See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc759303(WS.10).aspx.

What reg key am I looking for though...I tried your link and cant find where to find the hive.

The default user hive should be in C:\users\default\ntuser.dat.
