Does anybody know how to stop thinprint from automatically mapping the local default printer as the default printer in the VDI session? I want thinprint to map printers into my VDI session but want to be able to manage the default printer myself. It seems that if I change the default printer in VDI, log out and back in, my default printer has changed back to the same default printer I have locally.
Your help would be most appreciated.
I run across this issue often and normally suggest using a set of vb scripts just to set the default printer to whatever you want it to be. I have a friend that wrote a series of scripts that run inside the VDI VM and check against a master list to make sure the default printer is always the correct one.
Its not a fix but its a good work around.
There is a client-side setting for that.
The OEM version that comes with View Client doesn't include the configuration GUI, but you can edit the settings directly.
On Windows it's a registry DWORD value called DefaultState - default value is 1, set it to 0
On 64 bit systems, the path is
On 32 bit systems, it's
No idea how it works on other OSes
Which ADM has these settings configured for GPO? I have all the vdm ADM templates loaded that come with View and I don't see these settings. I would assume they would be part of the VDM_Client.adm file?
