My user is printing over rdp. Client is x64 Win 7, Server is x 64 2008. When the user logs into RDP and prints the first page it works correctly when they print a second time they get the error: Thunking Spooler APIS from 32 to 64 Process has stopped working. I tried a new printer driver. They are using the HP 2055dn. The driver is the HP2055 Universal Post Script.

Seems all MS x64 OSes have this printing issue. It traces back to Vista x64. You can try bypassing spooler by using the below method:
Start >> Start Search>> Printers>>Right Click Printer Icon >>Advance>> Print Directly To The Printer. (this bypasses the spooler)

This should not give the error.
