Client Printing Support

The Client Printing Support component is a macro component that bundles components to create the infrastructure which is required to enable client printing so that a thin client can print to a printer server through a remote procedure call (RPC) printer connection. This macro component can be used when an embedded system does not have sufficient CPU power to render a print job. By using this component, you can quickly add client printing support to your device.
