Autodesk Printing in Windows 7 using shared printer

Windows 7 shared printer install from another Windows 7 computer will not delete.  The printer was taken off line a few months ago but never got deleted.  Now the same printer is being shared from another PC on the network.  Both printers show up in "Devices and Printers" but when I go to select the new printer in Autodesk the new install doesnt show up.  The old computer share shows up. I have tried removing the old share from the computer for about 30 minutes and it will not delete.  No errors but when i refresh the old share shows back up.

I ended up going through the registry and deleting every instance of both share names.  After that I rebooted the PC and connected to the new share and it seems to work fine.  There were 30-40 registry entries with the old share name.  sheeeeesh
