Vista x64 cannot connect to Windows 2003 x86 printer share

I am getting an error saying "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Operation could not be completed. (error 0x0000007e)" whenever i am trying to added 64bit printer share installed on Windows 2003 x86 server to my system running Vista Ultimate x64. I have tried doing clean installation of latest driver for my HP LaserJet printer but no avail.

Any idea what might be causing that error??

I have come across many people facing this error anyways in order to fix it you will have to create a local printer on x64 machine. In order to do that create Local Port in \\server\printsharename and use the latest driver that you might have downloaded from hp site. I have found some people mentioning this trick to be working.
