Installing 2008 printer drivers with all operating system drivers

How do I install a printer driver on Windows 2008 so each subsequent client that connects to the printer automatically installs the correct driver for its version of the operating system. e.g. windows xp, Windows 7.

The particular driver that im working on at the moment is a HPc2025.

Need to install both 64 bit and 32 bit drivers.

You can also use Group Policy to deploy - in User configuration > Policies > Windows settings > Printer Connections.

when i run the install (contained within the download -the 32bit) version i receive the error: operation could not be completed (error 0x800f0214).  Ive already installed the 64bit version.  

Any ideas?

rjwesley: ill keep the group policy in mind for later on. thanks.

Extract the contents for the 32-bit drivers rather than install.

In the properties of the printer under the sharing tab click the additional drivers button and browse to your 32-bit (x86) driver.

To do this just install 32 bit drivers for the printer and to load 32 bit print drivers on the server select the HPc2025 printer > Properties > Sharing > click on Additional Drivers > select the x32 and hit OK, that should open a browse window, navigate to your 32 bit drivers and hit OK twice.
