Windows 7 printing via terminal services

My Windows 7 PC can't find a matching printer driver when I connect to my terminal server. Even when it looks like I have the exact same printer driver installed on both my Windows 7 PC and the terminal server, the printer does not show up in my RDP session.

For example, I even downloaded the basic "HP LaserJet 4" driver from the Windows Update Catalog but this driver appears to not match the printer driver with the same name installed on the terminal server. Yet my Vista PC successfully prints using the "HP LaserJet 4" driver when RDP connected to the same terminal server.

How can I get my RDP sessions to recognize my Windows 7 printer drivers?
