CAnnot install printer driver on Citrix Metaframe

I am trying to install a printer driver so a remote client printer can be created using the correct printer driver. He cannot print. When I check the printer setup via the citrix management console, the printer driver is incorrect and I believe thsi may be the problem. I downloaded the driver and attempted to install but its failing.

Help and suggestions are appreciated

Try installing it as a local printer (use the File Port or LPT1) and then just change the driver in the other Printer.

Tried that and got the following message
Printer driver was not installed, Operation could not be completed. Don't you have to put the cirtix server in install mode by typing something /install or install /user or something like that I completely forgot the syntax

Yes thanks very much. I created a dummy printer to install the drivers then delete the printer. Update the printer driver via print management in the console. Its all working

Thanks very much
