Can not print from Terminal  Server

Posted on 2012-09-10

I had a XP pro 32 bit with a HP Laserjet p2035n printer connected by USB.  While on the XP,  I could remote onto the 2008 64bit Terminal Server and  the HP would show up as redirected and was able to print.   The XP machine was replaced with Winows 7 pro 64bit and did the same setup with the printing, but now when connecting to the Terminal server, I can not print to the  HP.   It does show up as redirected but when doing a test page it says printing error unable to print.  I even tried to share out the printer on the Windows 7 and pull it over to the 2008 server.  When I do the test page, it leaves the queue but no test print.  Any ideas?

    Is the old driver from the XP still installed on the RD server? If so delete it and see if the redirected printer gets the Terminal Server Easy Print driver
    Easy Print driver
    Try printing with this driver.

    If this doesn't work you best install the latest driver for the HP, which is available for Win2K8 64bit as well as for W7 64 bit (which are available as I just have seen) and install the same driver (version) on both systems. Than you shouldn't have any issues printing in your TS session.

    Yes.  The XP driver was still there.  Once I removed it, it started working.

    Thank you.
