RDP redirected printing issues

h/t Al

If the Windows Server 2008 is also Domain Controller and if the print job shows on the server queue but disappears and does not get to the local computer and an “Access is denied” Error shows up on the system log you might need to “adjust” security permissions on C:\Windows\System32\spool

Just change permissions onĀ \windows\system32\spool and on all child objects
Try giving “everyone full control” to check if it solves the problem. If that’s the problem you might have to twick permissions on that directory tree.

Alternative solution to calculate and fix security permission for issue.



You can fix this Remote Desktop Services problem by opening an elevated Command Prompt window and entering the following commands:

Cacls.exe PRINTERS /e g users:C

After you enter that command, you must reboot.
