Download printer drivers directly from Windows Update

I have a Windows 7 Professional x64 computer where, for some reason, I have drivers for a HP LaserJet M1319F MFP. I don't know where they came from. I don't know if they came with Windows or they came in with Windows Update when I was adding a different printer.

   Anyway... I have a customer that has a M1319F MFP that is RDPing in to a host Windows 7 x64 system and that host system doesn't have the M1319F MFP drivers. The one I can download from HP (in all their infinite wisdom) will wait until the printer is physically present before it will install the drivers and the printer will never be physically present on that host computer.

   So... is there any way I can export/import or copy the drivers from my computer or the remote computer to this host computer so she can print remotely?

What should work is to extract the setup and then use the inf file for a manual installation.

I agree but ..... it is an HP. LaserJet M1319f MFP. Windows 7 x64. I have tried extracting but there is no obvious way to do it. Do you know how?

One thing I did try was installing a LaserJet 4100 on the same port and RDP picked it right up. That is another way to "cheat". I'd like to use the M1319f MFP drivers but can't find a way to do it short of hauling the printer up to the host computer just long enough to install the driver. HP has been a notorious pain in the butt for a million years with their drivers :)
7-zip can extract it.
