Disabling auto-creation of printers in Citrix

I have a few users who are experiencing Citrix printing/performance issues and I suspect its related to the number of Auto Created Client Printers and I'd like to disable them.  I found this article https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX117805 yet here is my issue:

I get an error writing to the registry while logged in to the Citrix server as the user and when I'm logged in to the server w/elevated account permissions, I also have issues.

 The Citrix documentation says:  "If the DefaultPrnFlags DWORD already exists on the server, add the specified hexadecimal value to the current value."

How do I do that?  It already exists and has a REG_DWORD value of 0x00004000.  When I right click>Modify only 4000 is in the Value Data text box.

Ideas?  Thanks in advance

So I was able to modify registry on the Citrix server and I deleted the all Auto Created Client Printers but they keep coming back.

use citrix policies to disable client printer auto creation.
DefaultPrnFlags  are usefull for special problems only.

I have good results with "create the default client printer only" and usage of citrix universal printer only.

Can the gpmc be used?  Whenever I try to launch the DS Console from the Citrix menu I get prompted to "configure" it as if I'm starting from scratch.

you can use citrix policies from GPO too.
But you should try to correct your Citrix installation.
Citrix studio connects to a database, if there are problems, your environment is corrupted.
