Redirected client printer as default printer

Thomas Falkner



we are facing issues with redirected printers from the endpoint (windows device).

The users should be able to decide which printer should be the default, so we  changed the settings for the policy "Default printer" to "Do not adjust....".

As long as a user sets a locally installed printer from the VDA as default everything works fine (e.g. a network printer directly mapped within user profile).

If a user sets a redirected printer to default (auto created printer from the client/endpoint device) the selection won't be stored after logout.


My environment:

7.15 LTSR CU 3

Server 2016 RDS

Windows Client

Receiver 4.9.5000 LTSR

Citrix Policies for printing: default values except "Default printer"

Registry Key for DisableNetworkPrinterDisconnect set to 1


I tried the solutions from CTX130848 and CTX232031 and checked user rights on registry and so on....  


If we choose the default value for "Default printer" (Set default printer to the client's main printer) it works, but that' s not what we want, because our users arent't able to change the printers.


Any help would be appreciated.
