All ThinPrint Clients Windows are started automatically:
- The RDP type is started with a respective session. Log off once from the Remote Desktop session before.
- The ICA type is started automatically with a XenApp or XenDesktop session. Log off once from the workstation before.
- The TCP/IP type as an application is started using an entry in the Startup folder, the other TCP/IP type as a Windows service on local print servers.
If the printer list of ThinPrint Client Service Windows is empty after starting the operating system maybe the client started faster than the Print Spooler. In this case start the TP Client Service Windows delayed in time – either using the start type Automatic (Delayed Start) or per script (start type: Manual); this could be the following:
ping 127.0.0.1 -n 30 >NUL
net start Thn32svc
Remember, several changes only take effect after restarting the ThinPrint Client Windows (see below).
Note! The ThinPrint Client configuration using group policies is described in ThinPrint group policies.
