JSI Tip 0510 - The server on which the printer resides does not have a suitable printer driver installed.

If you receive the subject message but you know the appropriate printer driver is installed for downloading, you probably have a permissions problem on the %SystemRoot%\System32\Spool\Drivers folder or subfolders and/or the permissions on the printer share are incorrect.

The printer share must offer Read permissions (the default is Everyone).

The default NTFS permissions for the %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers (and subfolders) are:

Administrators - Full Control 
Creator/Owner - Full Control 
Everyone - Read (RX) 
Server Operators - Full Control 
System - Full Control
