We are running Windows 2000 Servers and  e updated our MetaFrame XP farm to
FR2 this weekend.
At the same time due to other requirements we had to upgrade to IE 6 SP1.
We are running seamless apps.
Now the problem:
When a user logs in they are not getting their Local default printer.

Some testing that I have done is as follows:
1. With only IE open I change the default printer and close IE and this
keeps that default printer.
2. If I open Excel it has the default printer that I set in my IE session.
3. If I then change the default printer locally it is not my default printer
but the default printer that I set in IE.
4. If I change the default printer through a Cirtix desktop on the same
server that I have Excel running Excel's default printer changes right then,
I do not have to close and reopen Excel.
5. If I go to another server with Citrix desktop and change the printer
there it does not change in Excel.  However, if I close Excel then the
desktop session in that order, next time I open Excel it has got the new
default printer which is not my local default.
6. I see that every one has a registry key of HKEY_USERS\(user sid)\PRINTERS
DeviceOld =   and it is this key that is changing to the default printers
for the user based on their last printer for a server not local client.

Thank you,
