How do I install 32 bit printer drivers to Share on Windows 2003 64 bit?
Posted on 2009-02-18
I have a Windows 2003 server (64 bit) configured as a print server. I added a new "local" printer (with IP address) and shared it with the drivers included with the OS.
When I go to the Share tab and try to add additional drivers to support 32 bit clients however it ultimately fails. It has me browse for the .inf, but then reports
"The specified location does not contain the driver Brother HL-5250DN series for the requested processor architecture"
I read a solution for Windows 2008 that had you browse from a 32bit client to the folder and try to adjust the share there, but that didnt seem to work either.
I have this problem on multiple printers from multiple manufacturers. What should I be doing or looking for in a driver?
