Windows 2003 R2 x64 not picking up Canon iP90

Specs: Windows 7
We currently have 2 Windows 2003 R2 x64 Terminal Servers running that our organization logs into to do their work. Most of our computers are all x32 bit Windows XP machines with Canon iP90 portable printers attached to them. (These are field staff) The x32 bit machines including 2 Windows 7 x32 machines pass the Canon iP90 printer driver to these 2 terminal servers without any problems. Now we have introduced 70 new Windows 7 x64 laptops that we are attempting to connect to our current terminal servers. The issue is that the printer drivers are not transferring into the Terminal Server from the laptop. We can print anything straight from the laptop with no issues. If we open up the event viewer on the terminal servers it shows the Event ID 1111 stating that the driver for the Canon Inkjet iP90 is required. I have visited Canon's website and downloaded all variants of the x64 printer drivers for these printers and installed with no luck.

Are there any issues passing printer drivers from a Windows 7 x64 machine to a Windows 2003 R2 x64 machine?

Well the trick with this is to have the exact same driver on the server as you have on the clients, as you probably know. The name and version of the driver has to be the same. So it really doesn't matter which driver you choose, as long as you install it on both machines.

If you still can't get it working, double-check terminal server settings and see that you have it connecting printers at logon. You could also try another printer (you don't actually need a physical printer, just the driver installed) and see if that works. It might lead you to an answer.
