Can't map printer onto 64 bit 2003 server

I have a windows XP pro 32-bit PC. I have a HP Laserjet 1300 directly connected to this PC via usb cable. This PC has always connected to a windows 2003 terminal server and mapped this shared printer onto the server without a problem. After upgrading to a 64 bit terminal server, I am no longer able to map printer onto server.

I tried looking on HP's website for a 64 bit driver and installing additional driver, but nothing is working. I also tried a universal print driver, but that doesn't work.

Can someone tell me exactly what drivers, etc I need to do this?

You need to have 64-bit print driver to print from a 64-bit server.

Are you still using Server 2003 or it is 2008 now?

I suggest you install the following driver using Print Server Properties > Drivers tab, on both the Server and Client.

64 bit universal drivers will not work on your machine. You just have to install it as an additional driver using print server properties as I mentioned before. You have to do the same on the server.
