Hp 8150 Printer

Hi Everyone, I have a SBS 2008 server and Windows XP 32 bit clients. I have to configure a HP8150n printer on workstations. I install the driver on the server which is for 64 bits and when I try to share that queue andnstall it on xp 32 bit I can not . I understand that it is because of 64 bit vs 32 bit issue. I was wondering if there is a way to get a package drive that support 32 bit and 64 bit driver so I can have one shared print queue instead of having seperate queue on each workstation. Thank you in advance for your help.

Normally in the sharing portion of the printer properties (control panel, printers, right click on printer, sharing) you can click on the "additionnal drivers" button to install more drivers on the server.

Ok. i remember trying that and it told me that the drivers that the drivers I am trying to install is not compatible. I tried it few weeks ago so I can not say for sure what happened. Let me try it again because i could be mistaken. I will keep you posted. Thank you for a quick response.

You need to download the 32 & 64 bit drivers separately. Install them as additional drivers on the server as suggested by tibidoudou
