we deploy Printers with GPO in our Windows 2008 R2 AD, most Clients are WinXP SP3.
The GPO has to be Computer based not User based.

Same here. Any other ideas? Also, I have drivers on the print server for both 32 and 64 bit.

I checked it, before we deployed the printers we had to deploy a file from MS it´s called pushprinter.exe or pushprinterconnections.exe
