Drivers for Konica Minolta C352/C300 PCL?

Hi.  I need to add in the drivers for a Konica Minolta C352/C300 PCL in my Citrix Metaframe XP environment.  I've tried the universal driver, but Citrix isn't seeing the printers when the clients connect.  I've looked for specific drivers for Windows 2000 and have found several with "WHQL" next to the name of the driver.  Is this 'type' of driver going to crash my Citrix Environment?  

Is there another location for a specific driver for the Konica Minolta C352/C300 PCL or w work around for Citrix Metaframe XP running on Windows 2000 (besides an upgrade, working on that. ;))

THanks.

The Konica Minolta site has the driver you are looking for, it's just the older versions of the driver (http://onyxftp.mykonicaminolta.com/download/SearchResults.aspx?productname=C352).  Under Windows 2000 & PCL Drivers, it's one of the bottom few.

Thanks, I was looking at the drivers here, but the older ones all have the WHQL.  Will this be a problem?

WHQL just means that it went through the Microsoft Certification process.  That's a good thing.

Oh... I learned something new today. :)  I went back to 2.51 as something wasn't working with version 3.  Now, to wait and see if this works for my users as they are in another location.

If this works, I'll return and award you points.  Thanks.

I've done some testing and talked with the users today.  Within the ica settings setup on the server, the option to map the default printer is on and working correclty for clients with HP or canon printers.  This feature is not working for the Konica users.

I also tried setting up a forced map to one of the client\Konica users and selected the drivers downloaded yesterday, Konica Minolta 352/C300 PCL Version:2.54.0.0 (4/12/2006), the other driver, Konica Minolta 352/C300 PCL Version:3.1.0.0 (6/14/2006) didn't seem to install properly as it was erroring after the download during install.  I forced this by setting up a printer on the server, chose local port and found the client path to their Konica printer, it was listed as CLIENT\CUST-SERV-2#\KONICAC360.  

Thoughts?

Thoughts?  Is there another version of the driver that Citrix will like?

This is now currently working correctly.  The drivers version 2.54.0.0 worked correctly and after the remote user had their default setup correctly, Citrix did it's job.  Thanks.
