How to pre-install a print driver for future Add Printer functionality on client

I know this seems trivial but it's blowing my mind.  I want to pre install a print driver on my client machines, so that in the future if they ever want to add a printer on the network the driver is already present.  For the life of me I cannot figure out why I have to go through the entire HP Printer software installation process, which fails because "no printers are avaialble".  Well no kidding, the printer doesn't even exist yet on the network, i just want to prepare the machines for possible HP printers I might add in the future.  

Right clicking the print drivers themselves and choosing "install" doesn't appear to work in the future when i actually try it out.  My real situation is with RDP sessions.  Wjhere they map your local printers to your remote session.  I want on my remote box to have the printer drivers pre-installed so when i create a session it maps and doesn't give me the event error that the printer drivers could not be found.
