It's me again Inshort, from what I've discovered is that by default, Easy Print is enabled on 2012r2. When you disable Easy Print via gpedit , you can add drivers for a printer the good old fashion way. Technically, when Easy Print is enabled, the Advanced tab within the printer properties is Grayed out. ISSUE: I can't figure out a way to do both. When I first got this machine, my old faithfull HP 2035 wouldn't print. After I disabled Easy Print...it would print.. Few days later when attempting to add one of my customers I had the opposite problem. They couldn't print unless Easy Print was enabled. I still have another customer to add to this machine and heaven only knows which setting will work for them. Course, I don't really need to print, but I'm a good test subject.
