Virtual 2012 Windows server DC can’t communicate with printers

I have setup a Virtual 2012 server in a new domain.  Everything is working except for printing.  When I setup a printer, it communicates with the printer, and knows what kind of printer it is based on me putting an IP address in.  But when I print a test page, it says it printers, but nothing comes out.  I have added the Print server roll and removed it same results.  Now on the host server, I can setup the printer and it works just fine.  Just the Virtual DC is having the problem.  The host server is also a 2012 server.

Any suggestions would be great.  I have tried everything, and this is going to mess up this upgrade if I can’t fix it.

I am assuming the host is Hyper-V?

The Spooler folder on the C-Drive is set so everyone has no access.  Opened a case with Microsoft, and they pointed me to this artical  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968605  This is new with Server 2012 DC's.  Follow the artical and it will fix your problem.
