Can't install terminal services client 6.1.7600

I have several pcs all running windows xp sp3.  For some reason, 3 of these machines have a terminal services client 6.0.xxx and 3 have 6.1.7600.  They are doing RDP sessions to a windows 2008 R2 server.

the ones with the 6.1.7600 client get their printers from the local box and print with no problem.  The ones with the 6.0 clients do not.  I have downloaded the 6.1 client from microsoft here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=6E1EC93D-BDBD-4983-92F7-479E088570AD&displaylang=en but when I go to install it I get a message saying the version I have is newer.

Is this the wrong link for the 6.1.7600 client?  I don't understand why I can't install 6.1 when the version they are running is 6.0.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Maureen

I found that the ones with the problem were running version 6.1 of RDP and the working ones were running 6.1.7600.  All the machines are XP SP3.  In order to upgrade the affected clients, I had to download version 7 of RDP in the form of a windows update from here:

I also had to run .net sp1 from the windows update site to get the printers recognized.

After doing this the printers came up without any problems.
