XP SP3 to Win 2008R2 Easy Print

Windows 2008R2 server with Remote Desktop Services.
Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 clients are at another remote site using RDP v6.1.
When remote clients using their application print a job sheet (internal document) to their local printer using Easy Print it takes more than 5 minutes and seems to be about 2mb+ in size.

This occurs an HP Laserjet 4250 and also Kyocera Mita KM4035 printers.

Doing a test using the old Windows 2003 Server and TS, it took 0.1 second and the file was 64k. I noted that on this Windows 2003 Server, the printers were setup using a default set of drivers for a "HP Deskjet 500"

Should we disable Easy print?

Hello,

make sure you use up to date .net Framework 3.51. This is Crucial to to easyprint.

IF this doesn't enhance behavior, disable EasyPrint.

.net Framework 3.5 SP1 is installed on Server and Client.
The Easy print works, but it takes 5-10 minutes to decide to print.

In the end we used Printer Redirection, which if it fails will then use Easy Print
