Is library running on Citrix or Terminal Server? – Testing on existence/value of environment variable SESSIONNAME – Solution

Different users connecting to the server will have different local
printers setup, and won’t use some standard server printer.
Clearly this was just the first indication that maybe I should not to
use the default printer.
