Failed to add network printer

Failed to add network printer
Error: 0x0000007e

Solution:
In the printer server, delete the registry key
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Printers\\CopyFiles\BIDI

Cause: the station of users was trying to access a path that the 64bit OS do not recognize as valid: “spool\drivers\w32x86\3”. This path is set in the printer settings on the printer server.
