Deploy printer via GPO. 0x80070005 Access is denied

When trying to add a printer via GPO I got a warning in the application log on the remote desktop server.

The user ‘Printer1’ preference item in the ‘Printers {GUID}’ Group Policy object did not apply because it failed with error code ‘0x80070005 Access is denied.’ This error was suppressed.

Solution:
Activate “Run in logged-on user’s security context (user policy option)” under common tab on the printer properties in the GPO.

    Awesome!! In my case I had to delete and re-create the GPO because Item Targeting failed to stay checked when I click Apply and OK. Thank you!
