Network printers may fail to install on Windows 10 Version 1703 on PCs with less than 4 GB of memory
When connecting a network printer (a WSD device) to a network with a PC that contains less than 4 GB of memory and is running Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703), if I run the printer’s setup software on the PC, the setup software fails to
discover and install the printer.This problem did not exist prior to installing the Creators Update.

Microsoft has confirmed a known issue that may prevent network printer software from discovering and installing the network printer on systems with low memory (< 4GB).This is due to firewall hardening rules added in Windows 10 Version 1703.
