    "The printer drivers, it needs to be exactly as shown in the Microsoft Driver Updated (such as HP LJ300-400 color MFP M375-M475 PCL6 Class Driver)"

    So where do you find this?
    The driver is already installed on workstation... can it be used to install the printer for other users on the same machine, how do I find the driver name?
