Create a directory called C:\Temp and copy your printer driver folder to this location on your Server Core machine.

Now, Then, from the command prompt of your Server Core machine


start /w rundll32 PrintUI.dll,PrintUIEntry /ia /K /m <driver name> /h <architecture> /v 3 /f <driver inf file>"

filling in the necessary fields (driver name, architecture, and inf file) This bug has to do with problem server has using the print GUI. G/L
