I still cannot find a solution.

I've tried the following commands:

1.) export on the server:
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /Ss /n "PRT10" /a "D:\support\prt10.dat"

2.) import on a client:
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /Sr /n "PRT10" /a "S:\prt10.dat"

but get this error by importing on a client computer:

"OPERATION COULD NOT BE COMPLETED (ERROR 0X00000709).
DOUBLE CHECK THE PRINTER NAME AND MAKE SURE THE PRINTER IS CONNECTED TO THE NETWORK.
"

BTW The printer is connected to the network, I can add it using GPO without any problems and is printing from this client computer.

My problem are the settings, because GPO can add a printer to a client, without specific printer settings.
