Remote Desktop Server 2012 and Easy Print on Windows XP/Vista

If any of you have decided to try and print on a 2012 Remote Desktop Server, you will be in for some fun 🙂

Firstly, you will get errors in the Windows XP / Vista event log about tswpfwrp.exe. Microsoft released a hotfix for this which fixes the errors, but still doesn’t allow you to print.

You need to install the Microsoft XML Paper Specification Essentials Pack. Once this is installed, reboot the computer and try printing.

Also ensure that Windows XP has RDP version 7 installed.
