I upgraded my machine to XP64bit, just as a test to see if there would be any problems, guess what there was. Our current set of printer drivers are obviously all 32bit, which is fine; but i need to get the 64bit version onto windows 2000 server. I'm not sure that this is even possible. I have tried installing the printer onto my LPT1 port and then going to the shared printers folder on the win2k server and adding the drivers, but i don't get the option for x64 only x86 and itanuim.
So is it possible to put these 64bit drivers onto a 32bit server so that 64bit clients can download the drivers? Or does it have to be a 64bit server, in which case can I put the 32bit drivers on that machine?
I am assuming that it isn't possible, but i thought that I'd ask the question. Just means that everything is going to have to be 64bit in one big rollout, which will be nice :)
thanks for the help.
