Access Denied when installing copiers

Strange Access Denied issue when adding printers to workstations. The only error I get when trying to add a printer is Access Denied and its not on all workstations. The event id renders event id 10016. As far as I can tell its just Windows 10 machines.

1) Active Directory
2) Windows 10 Machines (Fresh out of the box and existing).
3) The users are added as local admins.
4) Savin copier, multiple drivers

EDITED: " nevermind that did not work".

Thanks for the reply but this was the fix.

Do you have anything in your group policy that is different on the workstations that do not get the error message?

That's the Distributed COM error, I think.

Obvious question - are you using "Run as Administrator" as well as using an account with Administrator privileges?

That 10016 event error may or may not have anything to do with your printer.  To check, go into the registry to HKLM>SOFTWARE>Classes> AppID and look for the GUID.  There will be a string there which will ID the application.
