1) Copying %systemroot%\system32\Tswpfwrp.exe from the W7 to XP (TSWPFWRP was crashing on print) - didn't solve the issue.
2) Removed a suspected offending printer that would stayed greyed out no matter what, (stoping/starting/checking spooler w/MS FIXit tool) and wouldn't allow for me to deleting it from HKLM\System\current control set\control\print\printers & HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Settings.
***Now when I stop and start the spooler, all the physical printers DO NOT come online BUT the software printers do.*** ALL printers show up normally when I initially log in.
3) Connected my XP Pro desktop to the W7 desktop and printed to my Canon MX320, NO PROBLEM.. Proving that the permissions are working.
4) Adding the printer as a 2nd copy to the W7 environment
5)checking the print spooler w/the MS FixIT spooler app on both machines.
6) Removing and adding the printer to the local machine (which prints fine to this network printer BTW)
7) Removed the physical printers in the W7 environment registry (HKCU and HKLM)
8) Turning off the "local resources" in RDC , logging in, loggin off, turning them back on and logging in.
9) Watched Sys32\Spool\Printers - populate data (2files come up, then a 3rd one while the printer shows 1 page pending/printing) and then after a few seconds, the files in Sys32\Spool\Printers disappear (as they should) and the printer then says "no
documents in print que"..
Firstly try to check the Event Viewer (eventvwr.msc) for any Event ID\Error log. When the client user’s logon to the remote session check the Event Viewer and see the Application category under Windows Logs, if there is something related to printer driver
problems; or any error clues.
