Install an approved driver
Obtain from the printer manufacturer a driver (that displays the Designed for Windows logo) for the specific model of printer, and install it on the affected computer.
To verify that you resolved the problem:
- Open the Printers folder on the affected computer, right-click an open area, and then click Server Properties. Make sure that the expected driver is installed.
- In the Printers folder, right-click the printer and then click Properties. On the Advanced tab, confirm that the expected driver is selected.
- Print a test page. If the print server logs spooler information events, look for Print Spooler Event 10 after printing, and then examine the document to confirm that it printed correctly.
