Hi there!
I have domain based environment with Windows Server 2008 R2 server and Windows 8.1 Enterprise Client computers.
There are a few printers (DELL, Canon) connected by IP to the server and there shared to clients.
I have successfully connect shared printer to a client computer, I can see all the printers in "Devices and Printers" control panel, I even can print the Test page.

But in other applications like MS Word 2010, Acrobat Reader and so on, I cant see any printer connected, there are only Microsoft XPS Document writer and "send to OneNote 2010"

Have you ever solved that?

PS: on the Windows 7 I have no problém with the same printers and the same (up-to-date and newest) drivers...

Can I allow any single application to print on particular network printer  <-- Printers are not application dependent normally, so you cannot do this so far as I know.

Did you try a local install on a test machine as I suggested?
