It's actually in Internet Explorer we are seeing the problem... -----Original Message----- From: Matt Kosht [mailto:matt.kosht@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wednesday, September 24, 2003 10:14 AM To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [THIN] Re: Anonymous Users Do the printers show up in Microsoft Excel? ***from CTX668903 When viewing printers in Excel 97/2000/2002, users can see all other users' autocreated client printers. The printer enumeration mechanism used by Excel causes the issue. See Q313683 <http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q313/6/83.asp> and Q297883 <http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q297/8/83.asp> for additional information. Other applications that use this sort of printer enumeration mechanism may experience the same scenario. Please review the workings of the API calls AddPrinters(), EnumPrinters(), OpenPrinter(), and GetProfileStrings() when determining how the application enumerates its printers. Issues of this nature are reproducible within an RDP session. Open Notepad and the application in question. Enumerate the printers and note the result **** >>> david_turman@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 9/24/2003 10:37:29 AM >>> No, I checked.

I have an NT 4.0 TSE with Citrix 1.8 and this is happening. But, they can't see all of them, just some of them. Seems to be random. Any known fixes?
