I have got this error on several occasions, once (at least) it was
related to different naming of the printer driver in different windows
versions (that is: bug by the driver manufacturer).
At one point I got the driver installed by going to the driver tab in
the "server properties" in the "printers" section (as seen from a
win2k/XP workstation). (To get to it you right-click on a white space in
the windows explorer window instead of right-clicking a particular
printer). Once there I clicked the driver in question, then on
"replace", but instead of giving it the same driver - I gave it the
driver for the additional windows version. It then added this driver to
the list (instead of replacing the other).
I hope this explanation wasn't too confusing.
Perhaps this (in a better wording) should be included in the updated

We are still waiting ....
