Vmware Horizon Default Printer keeps changing.

This post was originally published on this site



I have been working on this issue for about 3 months. I did every suggestion and option on this forum but none of them worked for me.


The problem is;


I have some GPOs that maps network printers to the users and they all use different printers so they set the closest one( or which one they want to print) as default. But next logon the default printer turns back to print to pdf.


What i tried;


UEM network printer






HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionDevices


HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionPrinterPorts





HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWindowsDevice


HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWindowsUserSelectedDefault


Disabled TP Services

Export default printer and import on next logon

Disabled printer redirection

Tried all reg fixes on this forum


I didnt tried all the options at the same time.


I dont have any default printer push policy or anything like that.


I dont want to use gpo or uem printer mapping to set the default printer bc i have to many users in the same department use different printers. I need to create 12-13 printer map policy or uem printer mapping.


There must be a easy thing to do this. I already have Horizon 6 with linked clones and we use windows 7. We never had this issue.





Horizon 7.7

Uem 9.7

App Volumes 2.16 (Profile only)

Linked Clones (Refresh)

Windows 10 Ent. 1809 / OS Build 17763.504

Clients use teradici zero clients



I am out of options. Any help will be really appreciated.



Thank you
