Windows Server 2003 printer driver error

222 100+
Dear all

I am using windows server 2003 sp1. I am connecting a printer called BIRCH prp080 to my pc using the serial port.

the printer is working well when I install the driver but the problem is when I restart the computer the printer won't work.

Right click properties in my printer driver will show me the message below

The prp-080 printer driver is not installed on this computer. Some properties will not be accessible unless you install the printer driver. Do you want to install the driver now

for each time I restart my computer, I have to stop the spooler from control panel delete driver from windows\system32\spool\driver and file server properties remove printer driver and then reinstall the printer driver for the another time


What is the problem about ???? Is it from my OS or It is related to the printer driver ?

Please point me to any direction that you see it would help me


Appreciated

What type of driver are you using? Usually Servers take Post Script drivers, many time PCL drivers have issues which could be the problem. Additionally that error is usually a compatibility issues.
