Printers not showing up on Terminal Server with Windows 7 client

Problem:
My local printers aren't showing up on my terminal server when I RDP. It worked with XP but not Windows 7

Solution:
Here's a post on TechNet with a bunch of suggestions Terminal Server and printer redirection 

Since it worked for me on XP but not Windows 7 i knew it was NOT a server setting. It's a driver issue, and the quick way to solve it is to download this: Microsoft's Terminal Server Printer Redirection Wizard Tool and then make your unmapped printers use the Generic / Text Driver. If you need more advanced printing options, then you'll need to install your printer's driver on the terminal server.
