Windows 7: Ricoh C5000 PCL5 Print driver wants to install after every cold boot.

Ricoh C5000 PCL5 Print driver wants to install after every cold boot.

Hi People..

We are just rolling Win7 out as we update machines. so far we have a dozen or so HP's (not my choice)with Win7. We are using Win2003 server as our File and Print.

The printer causing issues is a RICOH Aficio MP using the latest C5000 PCL 5c driver.

Our issue is on every cold boot on *most* machines first print of the day we get

Error Message: "Do you trust this printer? Windows needs to download and install a software driver from the\\servername computer to print to PRINTERNAME. Proceed only if you trust the\\servername computer and the network, and then restart the print job."

You add the driver, everytime, but makes no difference. Everything works fine for the day, if you hibernate the laptops and bring back to life, its fine.. but its only on a cold boot.

Anyone got clues, it seems to be very common when googling, but no real solutions.
