View - prevent printer name suffix

We have a pilot VDI system setup for testing that uses View v6.0.  The physical PCs have varying printers on them and I want them to appear in the virtual machine.  The ThinPrint component is pulling them through as expected but it is adding a suffix to the name such as "#:1".  Unfortunately we have some software that expects the printers to have specific names such as "Label Printer" and it doesn't support wildcarding.  Is there a way to stop the suffix being added to the name when it is brought into the virtual machine?

Thanks!

Yes, there is. On the View desktop, change the value of TPACScheme inside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\ThinPrint Print Port Monitor For VMware\Ports\TPVM: from %N#:%I to just %N

This change should be made on your parent image and deployed with a recompose to take effect.
