Ok so I am running Windows Sever 2008 R2. In this server I have a Hyper-V machine running, you guessed it, Server 2008 R2. This VM hosts one of our databases (its a tiny thing so the resources are good). I have disabled Easy Print in both gpedit and the GPO in AD. However it STILL installs printers using the Easyprint. If I remove Easy print, no printing at all.
I had a user in another building connect over a VPN and running remote desktop. On the old server (Server 2003) printing a 1 page document from the database he is in, took about 5 seconds or so. Normal.
When printing the same document from the same database but on the Server 2008 R2, it took 3.5 minutes just to spit that one page out.
I have been beating my head on a desk for a while trying to figure this out and from the onslaught of posts via Google searches, this seems to be a major issue.
What else can I do to get this thing to print like it's supposed to. I do not want to have to go back to the old server because, well in all honesty, I am amazed it even powers on.
One last thing... if it requires installing the printer directly, how do I accomplish that with no users connected if I know the make/model of their printers? (Probably overlooked how to do it but I've been staring at this so long my eyes are crossed.)

It's a well-known problem os TS-easy print and XPS printing itself.
use native printers drivers from vendor.

Thanks for your post.
Please note that in the process of Easy Print, the Easy Print universal driver acts as a proxy and redirects all the UI calls to the driver on the client. The performance and capability of this feature is quite related the drivers which supports Easy Print. If you have already installed the latest update for the printer drivers on both the server and the client side, but the issue still persists. I think the printer may have compatibility problem with Easy Print.
