trying to print to 32bit printer from a 64bit machine
Posted on 2010-08-30
I have a windows 7 64bit trying to print to a Canon IR1023inf multifunction printer that only has a 32bit controller in it. Can this be done? Directly printing to it through IP doesn't work. Canon tells me I need a 32bit controller but before we spend money on that, can't I just setup a print server that will take the 64bit request and somehow translate it to a 32bit request to go to the printer? Does is not work that way? any cheaper solutions besides me replacing the controller? Canon won't answer this as its "not supported".
