Hello Thiago,

Also had this issue once. On and Windows 7 Workstation walk to the 
remote printers folder on your server, open the properties of the 
affected printer, cancle printer driver request whom migth appear. Go to 
the "Extended settings" Tab, and open the "Print processor" Dialog, 
select winprint/raw even if it was already selected. Afterwards the 
share should work.
