I did now try many different drivers from different vendors none of them 
worked thus I think there is something else wrong.
I then did some more tests, trying to find anything being wrong with 
help of the process monitor and activating some more logs on the windows 
machine. What I see now is that just at the beginning of the upload the 
following error is in within the PrintService log:

- <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
- <System>
   <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-PrintService"

Maybe that helps getting to the root cause of the problem?

A minimal upload using rpcclient was possible, but in that case Client 
systems do not get the driver version and thus "think" the driver has to 
be installed again multiple times.
