I have a customer with a Win7-64 workstation that is on a local domain.
He reports that he cannot set any of his local or network printers as default.
I have remoted in and can confirm this behavior. The option to set as default shows up in the right-click menu for any installed printers. But selecting it makes no change.
I have installed a network printer and the last step asks if I want to set it as default. When I select and apply that option I get an error message that the option is not available.
I have tried turning off printer spooling and checked the folder at C:\Windows\System32\spool\Printers and found nothing there.
I checked the group policies on the domain controller and locally but don't see anything there I think would affect this.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
