Hello, I currently have a Citrix Server running Windows Server 2003. I am installing a driver for a Lexmark T642DN the PS3 driver. I have installed it and it looks seems fine, however, whenever I go to the properties of the printer it says the driver is not installed and asks me if I would like to install it now, I selected yes, and install it when I go to properties again it says its not installed.

I installed this same drivers on a third Citrix server and it works fine, our print server is a domain controller and the driver works fine there too. It just seems to be this one server, does anyone have any thoughts to why this might be?

If no users are trying to print, you can stop and start the Print Spooler service to see if that corrects it.

Try this. Make sure the account you used has admin rights. If so, go to Printers and faxes>File>Server Properties>Drivers>. See if the driver is actually there, if so, remove it. If not click on Add and install the driver there. If you go back to the properties of your printer and if it ask you to install the drivers, just install it again and use the existing driver. Hope this won't ask you again.

Uninstall it, delete the printer (if necessary), delete the printer from the registry and try again.
