I'm trying to add a 32 bit printer driver to the SBS 2008 server to deploy to users. Its a Toshiba e-STUDIO 281c.

When I click the additional drivers and browse to the files saved on the server I get the error
---------------------------
Selected printer driver not found
---------------------------
The specified location does not contain the driver TOSHIBA e-STUDIO451cSeriesPCL5c for the requested processor architecture.
---------------------------
Retry   Cancel  
---------------------------

They are the drivers downloaded from the toshiba website for the printer. Not sure if there is something I'm missing?

Are you trying to install both 64 and 32 bit drivers ? - From the server properties ?
If so, the drivers must be EXACTLY the same version and name.

When I added the printer the 64 bit driver was installed. Now I'm trying to add additional drivers. I had to download these from the website?

Yep, this sounds like the classic "drivers not matching up" issue.  Download both sets of drivers afresh (32 & 64)

and install them both in one sweep, like I said names and version of the 32 vs 64 drivers have to be EXACTLY the same

I cant seem to paste the driver page for your printer but you may want to try universal drivers see if that helps
