As I understand it, you now have two machines with the LJ1200 printer
drivers installed -- her client machine and the CUPS server machine.

If that's the case I doubt it will work; both machines are trying to
translate printer input through their own drivers. One machine needs to use
a driver, and the other needs to pass print input unchanged (raw).

My suggestion is that you define two printers on the CUPS server. One will
be the LJ1200, and it will use the LJ driver. Use this to print from the
CUPS server itself.

The other printer will be "LJ1200Net" or something like that, and it will
use raw input. It will accept print requests from the Windows machine(s).

This way all client machines use the drivers for their own OSs/applications.
So your girlfriend's computer should use the Windows drivers already

That way no matter who is printing, the print commands are translated only
