Citrix and Windows 7 local Printer issue
Posted on 2014-04-18
Have customers that recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 pc's. I am currently using a cloud host for them that provides Citrix Xen App servers on Server 2008 R2. When the customers had XP pc's, the network printers were set up locally on their pc's, and hsoted apps printed to them with no issue. As soon as I switched out the pc's were switched to Win 7, once i installed the network printers again locally, the users started having problems with the hosted apps trying to print to the local printers. While anything installed locally printed just fine, the hosted apps would show the redirected local printers as "offline" in the cloud often. Is there a reason why this is happening with Win 7 and local printer redirection?
