  • Try use 'out-of-box' drivers:

  • You mean the printer it self is not added?

    If, just adding the driver doesn't install the printer.

    Are your computers member of a active directory domain?

  • Just installing the drivers, doesnt add the printer.

    If you have a print server, you can deploy printers using gpo.

  • I agree with Jesper, if you are wanting the printers to be installed and have AD just use GPO.  As well, if the printers are being shared via a Print Server you should not need to install the drivers locally.  The Print Server should already have the appropriate drivers for the clients and will install them automatically.

    If you are in need of "Full Featured" drivers then you may have to use another route to get all the extras.
