HP Laserjet 2840 Win7 64bit Network Drivers On Win2003 Server 32bit

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Here is the scenario:

Windows 2003 R2 (32 bit) server (Domain Controller, etc.).  
HP Laserjet 2840 network printer.

My new workstation is a Windows 7, 64 Bit Edition machine.  When I install the HP Universal Driver 64 bit edition, which is the one they recommend, it fails saying "Printer Driver was Not Installed.  Operation Could Not Be Completed."

My guess is that this is because the Server is 32 Bit Edition and I'm installing 64 bit drivers.

How can I fix this so that I can share the printer via this server for 64 bit machines?
