HP 1022n On Windows 2008 Terminal server and Remote desktop

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
One of our users recently upgraded her computer from a WIndows XP laptop to a Windows 7 laptop.  She had an existing HP 1022n which she able to print to locally and from a Windows 2008 64 bit server.   After Sse installed the HP 1022N printer on her new laptop she was unable to print from the terminal server nothing would print.  

I tried to find a Windows 2008 64 bit driver but there was not one on the HP website.   We tried reloading the printer on the laptop but it still would not work.   I then downloaded the HP Universal  PS driver, which didnt work.   I then downloaded the HP Universal PCL 5 driver.   It worked on the local printer but still would not print from the Terminal Server.    I then tried the v5.3 version and everything worked.  

At least until she tried again the next night.  The next night a test page from Printer Properties it printed fine.  However when she prints from anything else it prints symbols.   I tried using the HP Universal PCL6 with no success.  I then tried moving it back to the PCL5 v5.3 driver but it would not print anymore.  I then tried changing the print processor to winprint with no success.  

What is the best way to get this printer working on both a Windows 7 32 bit laptop and from a Windows 2008 64 bit Terminal Server.  

I can not attache the printer to the server as she is a remote worker.  She is also using a wireless connection so the printer is connected via a USB cable
