PSA Migration Wizard Doesn't reapply Default Printer Status

I have noticed a problem when distributing the Client Migration Wizard via login script. If the wizard is going to update a printer that is the end-user's default printer, that setting is not reapplyed to the new printer. When the end-user tries to print from Word or any other application, they get a message that they have no printer installed (which really isn't the case). Any application just makes a call for the "default printer" and when no printer has that title, it thinks that none exist. This can occur even if the end-use has only one printer installed. After the update and you browse the installed printers, the new printer, even if it's by itself, won't be set as default. Let me know if I missed a step. The end-user is WinXP SP1. PSA 4250
