  11. Hi There, you do not need to delete file from server. You just need to delete TSWPFWRP.EXE file from your windows XP system 32 folder and copy same named file from windows 7 PC. Let me know if you stuck anywhere and can not solve it.

  14. Hi There,

    It does not work for me :-(. I got rid of the message but there are no prints comming out of the printer.
    Any more good ideas?

  15. Hi There, It could be printer driver does not support terminal server printing. If you have another printer handy then try another printer. If you already tried another printer then use universal print driver instead of specific printer model driver. You need to use that print driver on local computer and terminal server will automatically use client universal print driver..

    Try this and let me know if it works.

    good luck

  19. Anonymous: Can you actually print outside of the Terminal Server session?
    Which printer are you using?
