I am having a devil of a time trying to install an older HP Laserjet 4050 on a Terminal Services Windows 2008 R2 server.  The printer is shared on the network as "Acct-HP4050".

I downloaded both the PCL5 and PCL6 univesal print drivers.  Regardless which .inf I choose under either PCL5 or PCL6 I get the following error message:  "Windows cannot locate a suitable printer driver.  Contact your administrator....bah, bah, bah..."

So my question, experts, is how can I find a 64bit printer driver for the laserjet 4050?  

FYI:  This is an older printer, obviously, but because we print checks using a special MICR toner cartridge...and hence, the reason why this printer is needed.

Thanks in advance for you help.
