Windows 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services Printer Drivers

We recently moved to a Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Server. Most printers seem to work okay with the easy print driver. However we have one user with an HP printer which only prints garbage through the remote session. When I look at the printer properties, everything is grayed out and I can't make any changes. How do I make this one printer use a driver other than the easy print driver?

Have you added the print driver on the RDS server ?

Yes, the driver has been added to the server. But, the printer uses the easy print driver anyway. I don't see a way to manually change the driver in the printer properties. I even tried disabling the "Use remote desktop easy print driver first" setting in group policy.

I guess you can try deleting the driver:

windows key + r ---->type printui /s /t2
