Hi Sven, 

Ok, all the things you need to know to fix it. 

If you are deploying a printer using User Group Policy Preferences,
the linked OU should contain users that need to have the printer installed. 

If you are deploying a printer using Computer Group Policy Preferences,
the linked OU should instead contain computers that need to have the printer installed. 

Linking a User GPP to an OU that only contains computers, or vice versa, will have no effect. 

When deploying a printer to an OS that is a different architecture than the print server (such as 32-bit Windows 10 connecting to a 64-bit print server), make sure the correct drivers are installed on the print server. Both the 32-bit and 64-bit drivers must have the exact same name for them to associate properly. Deploying a printer will fail if the appropriate driver for the printer can't be found.

>>>>>>!! this needs to be on user AND computer policies.  !! <<<< 
Why, due to KB3170455. 

Uncheck/check "Users can only point and print to these servers" and 
Uncheck/check "Users can only point and print to machines in their forest"

Define the servers which deploy you printer drivers.
>>>>>  and do use the servers there in FQDN.   <<<<<<< 

Disable search for printer drivers through windows update. 

Problems with setting/keeping the default printer..  
And as of Windows 10 1511,  Turn off "Let windows manage my default printer" 
With Regkey: 
HKEY_Current_User\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\LegacyDefaultPrinterMode 
Dword: 0x00000001 

And if you connecting to \\server\printer 
Change it to  \\server.internal.domain.tld\print-share


And did i report : KB3170455 already ? 
This is the problem maker, KB3170455 stops non-admin users from 
installing a network-printer .. 
all info here about the patch: 
http://blog.vectranetworks.com/blog/microsoft-windows-printer-wateringhole-attack 

If above does not work/helps to a solution then im out of options. 
Keep an eye on the printer driver suppliers, they must modify there drivers also, so its 2 problems in one. 
So if you cant fix it with all info above, remove KB3170455 and wait untill the printer driver supplieer and MS releases new bugs ;-) 


Greetz, 

Louis
