Install win 2008 R2 64Bits printer driver to Windows 2008 32Bits
Posted on 2010-11-30
I have a printer server on a windows 2008 32Bits edition. I need to add the 64bits printer drive to it to map my printer on my new Windows 2008 R2 server.
My printer is a Brother MFC-8460N and the only suitable driver for windows 2008 R2 is this one : BR-Script driver(Postscript language emulation)
So this is what I tried.
1- open the printer shared folder from the windows 2008 R2 and add the new 64 bits driver into the print server proprieties.
2- Try to directly map the printer into the windows 2008 R2 and provide the driver manually when it asks for.
I alway get an error
Unable to install Brother MFC-8460N BR-Script3, Type 3 - User Mode, x64 driver. Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000242).
Can you help me out with this ?
