"Local Downlevel Document" printing errir

I have a client who we are setting up to print over Terminal Services.  They are running an HP 3030.  We setup the printer through regedit and checked the port.  It is showing in remote desktop but when we print to it, it looks like it goes through from remote desktop, and gets hung up on the local computer with a "Local Downlevel Document" error.  When I set up the first computer the other day it worked fine.  Then we setup a laptop today for the same printer, and now neither computer can print and they both get the same error.  Any thoughts?
