Upgrading Windows 7 HP printer driver with normal user right

So far we used ZCM to push printer policies to the workstations and that uses the ZCM credentials to install printer drivers (I suppose).
But if I upgrade the printer drivers on the iPrint server (From HP Universal Driver V5.1 to HP Universal Driver V5.7) users are asked for admin credentials.

How do I prevent that from happening? I thought the printerdrivers should be upgraded using the iPrint software, not via user rights?
I have set "AllowUserPrinters = 3" in iprint.ini, but to no avail.

Yes, I now have a working workaround.
I created a ZCM bundle to install the HP Universal Printer Driver (version 5.7). Make sure you do it unmodified (so don't use the driver tool from HP), because if you do Windows thinks it is no longer a signed driver and UAC pops up.
Than I overwrote the printers conf file that I made with the driver modification tool via the same ZCM bundle.

Now when I upgrade the printer driver on iPrint Windows sees the driver is already there and won't try to install via iPrint.

It is a working solution, but this defeats the purpose of having a driver store in iPrint to install printer drivers.
