Printer Error 0x000003eb when installing printer

Printer Error 0x000003eb when installing printer

When trying to connect to a network printer you get the following error 0x000003eb :
For me, this turned out to be a printer driver issue. To determine this, i created a new printer on the server using the same IP, driver, permissions etc and the problem again occurred.
I then changed the printer driver to a random driver  ( of a printer model that i know works OK on the server) on both the new and existing printer objects and ta-da the printer worked.
While researching this, i also found reference to the print spooler service crashing, however this was not a symptom in my case. IMHO, if the service is crashing when you install your printer, this probably points to a driver issue anyways
