Remote printing doesn't work. Remote XP, Local Windows 7

I have a friend that is using remote desktop to access her office desktop (XP) from her home desktop (Windows 7).

If your friend is remoting into a corporate environment, it is possible that they have disabled printer redirection, as that is what is done at my company. I believe that clipboard sharing can also be disabled via Group Policy. Has this ever worked in the past?

"another option:

With PrinterAnywhere you will
be able to print documents and photos
on other people's printers as easily
as on the local one connected to your
machine. No special technical
knowledge is required from both -
printer owner and user. It just works!

... like Skype for printers :)

PrintAnywhere is freeware."
