      hi
      check in the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows
      1. this key was not exist just add this key

      2. then create a default printer on the server (in case of terminal server issue)

      3. and after you success to create default printer add this lines to registry
      [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]
      "DebugOptions"="2048"
      "Documents"=""
      "DosPrint"="no"
      "load"=""
      "NetMessage"="no"
      "NullPort"="None"
      "Programs"="com exe bat pif cmd"
      "NetWarn"="0"

      all the type is string value

      good luck
