Printer Server (64bit OS and 32bit Clients)

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?V2FkZUJhcnQ=?=, Oct 8, 2007.

  1. We have a new Windows 2003 Server (x64) that we want to use as a print
    server. When loading the printer drivers on the servers, it requires a
    64-bit version. When a 32-bit client connects to the printer share it says
    it's the wrong version.

    Are we not going to be able to use an x64 print server for x86 clients?

  2. See my blog on how to add drivers for additional architectures.

    Written for going the opposite way (to enable 64bit drivers on 32-bit print
    servers) but the steps are the same in any case.
