RSclientPrint Active X control won't open printer

When attempting to print a report running from an SQL 2005 server, I get the unable to load client print control error.  I have ensured that the client - side printing is enabled on the server, I have logged into the client computer with admin rights (didn't work), and I have manually installed the drivers.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, but I was able to solve the issue myself.  I had to upgrade SQL 2005 to SP2, then I had to install a patch to correct the printing issue.

You got it - you really should upgrade your SQL server to SP3 actually as there are a few other hotfixes that break the client side printing control.
