Block users from adding a new printer from within an application

Nelson Kaeppel


We have gone to great lengths to control printers in our Citrix environment.  Part of this includes only allowing the Citrix Universal Printer Driver for client redirected printers.  I recently discovered that users can use the published application to add their own network printer and install the native driver from the print server they add it from.  For example in Excel, a user can click print and select "Add printer" from the list of printers dialog box.


So now I am finding all sorts of Cannon and HP drivers on our Citrix servers that are supposed to have only the UPD.


Has anyone developed a solution to block this process generically - that is not dependent on the application.  For example, is there a GPO that blocks this ability?
