To use Remote Desktop Easy Print, you must change the Group Policy default printer driver behavior. The policy setting is located in the following node of the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC):

NOTE: If you are using the Local Group Policy Editor, “Policies” is not part of the node path.
To edit your local group policy, enter "gpedit.msc" in the Run command. To edit your domain group policy, enter "gpmc.msc" in the Run command. To force the local group policy, enter "gpupdate /force" in the Run command.
Before MultiCHAX can be used, the Remote Desktop Easy Print setup must be completed.
