Include printer drivers for Vista into a Windows 2003 Printserver

  1. Hello,

    how can I include print drivers written for Vista into a Windows 2003
    Printserver in order to publish/distribute the printer in the AD ?
    The Windows 2003 server has at printer properties (Tab "Sharing") the Button
    "Additional Drivers" only the option to include/install drivers for Windows
    200x, XP, NT4, 9x and the Itanium-platform plus Intel x64 -but no
    entry/option for Vista.

    What can I do in order to include them?
    I can imagine, that I´m not the only one with this problem - there must be
    thousands of companies around the world with this problem.

    Is Microsoft not able to update/patch the Windows 2003 Server (printservice)
    in order to serve also Vista Client Computers with print drivers?
