  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 4.6


To use the Terminal Services Easy Print driver, a client's machine must be running both of the following:

  • Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) 6.1
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or a higher version

For more information, refer to this Microsoft article: Terminal Services Printing

Containers to where printers are redirected must have Spooler Service running.

Windows 2008 R2 servers should have KB2655998 installed.

Note: To add a printer through RDP, log in to the container twice. On the first login, the printer's driver will be installed. After the driver is installed, it is necessary to restart Spooler Service and reconnect the RDP session.

On the Hardware Node, it is not required to restart Spooler and reconnect RDP; the printer is installed on the first connection.

Note: This issue is fixed in VZU460063 update so install it and the issue will be resolved.
