I'm not sure what I'm missing as I have done this with Server 2003 R2 before. I created and shared the printer, created a GPO deployed the printer to the users of the GPO and copied the PushPrinterConnections file and made it a login script. I also made sure the user is getting the policy by running gpresult. Finally since the server is x64 I made sure to put the additional driver for x86 in the sharing section. So, what am I missing?

Thanks.

I found that you need the 32-Bit PushPrinterConnections.exe not the 64-Bit that came on the server. So I added the printer role to another server that's 32-bit, copied the file, and took the role back off. Now, if I use the 32-bit file on the 64-bit server, it works. Sheesh!
