I have a server 2008 R2 server running remote desktop services that I want to print to a Zebra ZM400 pallet tag printer.  If I add the printer as a network printer everything works perfectly.  If I just have the printer as a usb printer so a workstation that logs in then its redirected to the easy print driver.  I have set the group policy to look for a driver first then if not found use easy print.  The driver is one the server as I said the network printers work fine.  I tried custom mapping and regardless what I do it grabs the easy print driver.  I have also got error 1111 Driver Zebra ZM400 (203 dpi) - ZPL required for printer Zebra ZM400 (203 dpi) - ZPL is unknown. Contact the administrator to install the driver before you log in again.   The driver been there for weeks.  I am stumped.

Have you tried disabling Easy Print on through the server's local security policy?

Computer Config -> Admin Templates -> Windows Components -> Remote Desktop Services -> RD Session Host -> Printer Redirection -> Use Remote Desktop Easy Print printer driver first -> disabled.

Yes I have disabled using easy print first. And it works fine with a couple of HP printers that I have loaded the drivers and it uses them first and it uses easy print for printers that have no drivers.  Works perfectly except the zebra that had driver loaded.

Why don't you just install it as a network printer on the 2K8 system? It ought to work fine.

Its the 32 bit O/S that's causing your problem.
Make sure they are an exact version match; but, install the x64 on the server and the corresponding x86 on the clients and all will be well with the world.

I think what DavisMcCarn is saying is that you also need to load the x86 driver on the server as well. Even though it is a RDP session, the driver should match the OS.

The version of the 32 and 64 bit drivers must be an exact match (down to the .000000000nth decimal place); but, your in luck, go here: http://www.zebra.com/us/en/support-downloads/industrial/zm400.html

Make sure you uninstall any drivers already installed and the use the v2.6.77.18 drivers on everybody.
