    If I plug my Epson printer directly into the USB port of the Surface RT, then it magically installs the drivers and I can successfully print a test page.

    However, when I try and add the same printer from the Homegroup, Windows Updates attempts to find the drivers again, but fails. It then prompts for a driver location/software which I don't have as Windows found it the first time around.

    Is it possible to locate the drivers what Windows Update installed?

    I just tried too, no go. I even directed the INF files to it and it didn't work which is located in the c:/windows/system32/drivers/ I guess it takes special drivers?
