Installing several identical printers

Last Modified: 2013-12-05
I want to install 10 Dell 1710n printers and 2  Dell 1720dn printers on a Windows Storage Server 2003 x64. I choose 'add printer', choose the right IP-number for that printer. I get the window where I can choose a printer, but because it's not in the list I choose 'Windows Update', there I can choose my printer driver. Now, if I want to install the next printer (same model) I can't choose the driver anymore. It disappeared from the list I get from 'Windows Update'.

I already removed all the printers and ports and started over again, but the problem is still the same.

Seems the problem was in the drivers. I took the drivers from the Dell site and it works perfect.

For the people who need drivers for the Windows Server 2003 x64 for the Dell 1710n or 1700n use the Windows XP x64 drivers they work perfectly.
