"This operation requires an interactive window station"

Hi everyone, I just started working in IT and my boss asked me to install a Konica 1600w printer on another person's pc. It installed perfectly on my computer, but when I went to install it on the other one, I keep getting this error.

I have read around other people's solution for this problem, but short of re-installing windows, how can I get this thing to work?

I will look around, but for now, are you an Admin/user on the computer?

Are you installing this as a network computer or some other way?

Edit: I notice page 1-10 of the user guide states the printer cannot be used as a shared printer. Could this be related to the situation?
