Group Policy deployed printers are not being deployed

Deployed printer with GPO settings  - User configuration->Preferences->Control Panel Settings->Printers
I also set the point and print restrictions gpo setting to:
•When installing drivers for a new connection: Do not show warning or elevation prompt
•When updating drivers for an existing connection: Show warning only
GPO was verified as being applied with GPRESULT /R
But not seeing the printers, I get the following in event viewer any ideas?:

I re-installed both the 64bit and 32bit print drivers, but still getting the error
on the workstation, I browsed to the unc path of the printer and tried to connect, I am still getting a UAC prompt to install the drivers, which is odd since I enabled When installing drivers for a new connection: Do not show warning or elevation prompt in the GPO?

When I click install drivers, it looks like it's copying the drivers, then it errors with Cannot connect to printer, access denied. But I don't understand, on the share it is shared out to Everyone, so I don't know why it would say Access denied?
