In our test environment, after installing KB3170455 on client computers, I would not be able to install the print driver from the internal print server and would get this error message.

Although uninstall of the KB from the client would in most cases fix the problem, this is not an acceptable solution. After checking what was effectively happening, I found out that the driver was no more considered a Packaged driver by the client and thus failed to install. The issue was not happening on a patched Server with the same client config.

Applying kb3000850 to the Windows 2012r2 server fixed the problem.
