I can't get 32 bit clients to mapp printers from a 64 bit print server.

I have built a new server 2008 64bit server and made it my print server. When my 32 bit client try and map a printer from it they get the following error "The server does not have the correct printer driver installed. The issue is because the server is using the 64 bit driver and the client needs the 32 bit driver. I have installed the 32 bit driver on the server using the print management console and can see the driver however i still get the error message. I found this post on EE but nothing helped me on it. "http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Peripherals/Printers_Scanners/HP/Q_23167078.html" I know i can just set up and 32 bit 2008 server and would get me past this issues but i would like to have everything 64 bit in my environment. Thanks in advance!

I have done excatly what this artical says "http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732946.aspx" I checked to see if UNC is enabled and it is not for administrators. I have not checked the third link.

Yes i the last one helped. The drivers have to be named the same. So i had to go to HP's site download the 64 bit and 32 bit driver, install them and then configured the printer on the server to use the HP driver and not the one supplied with windows server 2008. Thanks for you help.
