Screenshot Win7

When connecting with printmanagement.msc to a Samba print server, the printer list isn't shown when using Windows 7. In Windows 8.1 it works.

Attached a screenshot showing the empty list in printermanagement.msc on Win7 and the printer list, when accessing the remote printers via \\hostname.

Also attached a level 10 debug log Win7 + Win81 showing a refresh try of the printer list.

Uploading the logfiles again.

It contains now not just the refresh of the printer node. Now it also contains opening printmanagement.msc and clicking to the printer list.

I re-tested this with a Samba 4.5.0rc2 print server: The printers are listed only on Windows 8.1, but not on Windows 7 and 10.

Windows 7: fail
Windows 8.1: OK
Windows 10: fail
