How do you reinstall Microsoft XPS Document Writer on Server 2003 R2?

Clarity_IT
I am having problems getting the MS XPS Document Writer (printer) to install on Server 2003 R2 (32 bit). I need the XPS printer in order to work correctly with QuickBooks 2011.

I have talked with QB tech support and they are saying that I need to talk to Microsoft in order to fix the issue.
Here are things that I have tried...

1. Installed the XPS Essentials Pack.

2. Repaired the MSXML 6 SP2 (KB973686)

3. Installed MSXML6.0 SDK

4. Ran sfc /scannow

It seems that the XPS Essentials pack installs correctly to the point where I can save a XPS file and use the XPS viewer to view that file, but I can not get the XPS printer to install correctly.

When i try to install the XPS printer I get this error...

The specified location does not contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the location contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with Windows for 32-bit systems.

I am installing the driver from C:\windows\system32\spool\xpsep.

Anyone have any thoughts or possible fixes for this?
