HP LaserJet 1200 RDP Redirect Win10/7

Last Modified: 2016-01-20
I have a client who has an HP LaserJet 1200 connected via USB to her Windows 10 computer.  From the Windows 10 computer she RDPs into a Windows 7 computer.  Printer redirection is enabled, and the Windows fax device redirects fine, but the HP 1200 is not.

I wanted to install the driver on the Windows 7 side, but HP doesn't offer a driver download for this printer, it just says to use Windows update.

Is there any work around or some way I can make this work?
