Windows 7 : Windows 2003 Print Server

Came across an issue today where a Windows 7 client would not print to a Windows 2003 x64 print server. The solution was a registry key to disable the use of Async. RPC for printing:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Printers\
    Right-click Printers, point to New, and then click DWORD.
    Type EnabledProtocols.
    Rigkt-click EnabledProtocols.
    In the Value data box, type 6.
    Close Registry Editor.

Reboot the client then test printing again.
