I normaly onlu use windows 7, since that works fine for me, but i'll setup a win10 and give it a try.
My cups server publishes x64 by default and you need a win32 and a win64 pc to upload both drivers.
Atm i only do 64bit drivers since i dont have any 32bit os running anymore.
> And what does mean NT_STATUS_SHARING_VIOLATION error ?
I this this is related to : access denied
Now, this is something you can try and i'll explain what is difference in my setup.
Most users dont use spoolss and dont use the architecture setttings.
rpc_server:spoolss = external
rpc_daemon:spoolssd = fork
spoolss:architecture = Windows x64
Now, since you number ... Somany who says its not working and here it is, ive done a good checka again in my setup.
( the install if from 2015, as of samba 4.2 )
There as a "historyical" bug, about lower and uppercased characters in (Debian) /var/lib/samba/printers/
The good layout, untouched as of 2016.
root@rtd-print1:~# ls -al /var/lib/samba/printers/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Mar 11 2016 COLOR
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Mar 11 2016 IA64

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Mar 11 2016 x64
But this is what im using ( since aug 2015 )
I symlinked very folder lower to uppercase, now this bug was i believe on the X64/x64, but i did them all.

At least a thing you can try.
