It has been reported that under Windows 7 only one printer icon will appear. Usually the "Student Mobile Printing Color".  However, both "Student Mobile Printing BW" and "Student Mobile Printing Color" appears when selecting a printer from within a program.  This is a known Microsoft issue and there is currently not a sufficient resolution to this issue.
