Haven't come accross this before.  Installed a USB HP p1102w via USB on a client's Windows 7 x64 workstation and the test page printed perfectly.  I then logged onto the Terminal Server (Windows Server 2008 R2 x64) via RDP and it redirected the printer appropriately but when I go to print a test page it gives the error 0x80070057.

I recommend you install HP Universal driver for your printer and try it again.  If not, you could also use a printer mapping file which will force it to use a different driver:

Thanks you were on the right track with this post.  After some research we found that the HP P1102W isn't supported for printing from a Terminal Server so we have reached out to the customer letting them know they need to get a suitable printer.
