Printer Redirection with RDP

I have a Windows 2008 R2 server with the RDS role enabled. It is running the following services:
Remote Desktop Connection Broker
Remote Desktop Licensing
Remote Desktop Services
RemoteApp and Desktop Connection Management
I also have an SBS2011 server that has the RD Gateway and RD Web Access services installed. This is also the print server.

When a user connects to the 2008R2 server via RemoteApp, the redirected printers are showing up within the application. When a user tries to print to one of these redirected printers, nothing prints. There are no errors in the event logs of the client computer or either of the servers. I have also tried using RDC from outside of the network. The printers at my remote location are showing as being redirected, but nothing will print and there are no errors.

In the Group Policy editor, I have tried enabling "Use Remote Desktop Easy Print printer driver first", disabling "Do not allow client printer redirection", and enabling "Allow Print Spooler to accept client connections."

I have tried with local and networked printers. The networked printers are HP LaserJet P3005 and HP LaserJet P2015, and the local printer is an Epson Workforce 615.

It turns out that it was an issue with printing forms through one of our applications. The application redirects the forms through Adobe Reader and it was not transferring the form properly when using a redirected printer.
