sorted printing via RDP windows 2012r2

Last Modified: 2016-04-13
We have Windows 7 64 bit with a USB HP P2055dn installed. On the pc everything is working fine. Sorted printing works without a problem.
But..When we go to the remote desktop, build with windows 2012r2 and want to print a document via Word2016 (sorted), this option is not working. We see the option sorted, we activate it, also in the extra options of the HP printer we see "print sorted", but it does not metter if we activate it, it won't print sorted.

The only thing we see is that Windows 2012 r2 RDP is using type 3 drivers. When we go to a Windows 2012 r2 domain controller, we see type 4 printerdrivers installed with more options.

Any ideas how to solve this problem?
