Printing is unreadable from Window 7 clients


  • We have a 2008 Terminal Server.  We created a RemoteAPP.  Windows XP clients can print from the RemoteAPP.  The driver is the Epson FX-286e and we use Easy Print.  Windows 7 clients cannot print clearly.  The text is broken and unreadable.  The Windows 7 drivers don't include the FX-286e driver but I tried one that is similar.  Running the app locally from Windows 7 prints fine.  When I run the RemoteApp and try to print it is not readable.  I tried the tip here...

    which basically tells the clients not to use Easy Print first but it doesn't help.  I also tried disabling "Enable advanced printing features" but that doesn't help either.  Any one know how to fix this?

  • Have you already installed the Epson drivers to the server, rather than use Easy Print?

    Assuming it's a 64-bit server, first add the printer to the server in Print Management with 64-bit driver (assuming Print and Document Services role is installed), then right-click, choose Sharing / Additional Drivers, check x86, then point it to the 32-bit driver. Once both are installed, maybe it will print?

  • Thanks for the reply.  It's only a 32-bit server and the Epson drivers are installed but it doesn't help.

  • Is the Windows 7 client also 32-bit?
