I'm trying to print remotely from a Windows 7 Pro with RDP enabled to a Windows 10 Home with a HP Envy 5530 connected wirelessly, and I have not been able to do so, evidently the printer print just fine under the Windows 10 machine, but I can't seem to see the darn printer when connected to Windows 7 via RDP, I have tried a bunch of things, have installed the drivers under the Windows 7 Pro, have enabled and disabled the printers option under the RDP client connector but no luck. Any ideas here please?

Hi,
On the RDP connector under options have you checked to bring the printers to the local system?  Do the printers have exactly the same name and drivers on each of the systems?

Larry, I've done all the above and even some registry tweaking, this behavior is not the normal behavior from other configurations in which I have done in the past, so I've decided not to spend more time on it and installed a paid re-director software from TerminalWorks. It is working now, thanks for your time. Thanks for your reply.

Fixed by installing a third party software redirection.

I've used TSprint from Terminal Works, it did the job for me.

Does that tool work on a workstation to workstation RDP session? looking at the website and it appears to be for citrix or windows Terminal servers.
