I have the same problem with a Xerox DocuColor 1632. When the driver is 
downloaded by the client from the print$ share, I can't activate the finition 
module of the printer. 
If I install the printer driver locally "by hand", it works...
I'm still looking for a solution...

Same configuration...

I hope someone can help us :-)
