Brother 8460n and windows server 2003
Posted on 2006-11-19
All of the drivers that I have downloaded for this Brother 8460n for NT like operating systems (including the generic pcl one that clearly states it is for use in windows server 2003) then installed on our windows 2003 print server result in the higly descriptive error : "can't install printer" and then the hardware wizard quits.
I know that this has to do with the driver, becuase I installed a driver for an HP on it (accidentaly) and it never threw an error (just printed pages of garbage), and it can be installed as a network printer on an XP box with the windows 2003 driver.
It's currently connected to the network through a HP Jetadmin printserver, but our legacy stuff has to print from the 2003 server.
a) a driver for the 8460n that works in 2003,
b) another driver I could be using
c) a cunning workaround?
And where can I download it?
