I never had a problem getting the CUPS Windows PS drivers working but had an 
entirely different problem in the use of them. What I experienced was when a 
user requested multiple copies, each copy was separately sent and decoded 
tying up the printer for ages. With the native Windows drivers the page is 
sent and decoded once and then printed many times. Unfortunately I had to 
give up page accounting over this issue.

Two things in the works that may help: Easy Software is working on a new user 
mode Windows PS driver and CUPS 1.2 is to have a bi-directional back-end 
which may allow one to query a printer's counter even when using the Windows 
native drivers.
