Windows 2003 domain server, HP LaserJet 4350

After using driver wizard from the HP supplied CD on 2003 server, XP clients are not downloading necesarry driver (from 2003) when adding a new network printer. Add New Printer (on a client side) finishes with error that drivers are missing without attempting to download. The result is same even if driver is added manually from a CD during Add New Printer.

Sharing/Additional Drivers shows 2000/XP/2003 drivers as available.

Thank you

    If these are domain users, you will need to add print driver as administrator.
