I have a Windows 2008 64 server that I am adding printers to for logon.bat reasons.

The issue I am having is both of my Xerox Phaser 7400's will not install the 32 Bit version of the drive, but the other printers do with no issue.

I know you need to install the 64 bit version then go into sharing and click additional drivers. When I do this, it asks for 32 Bit Driver, then NTPRINT.INF from a Windows x86

Used Windows 2003 32bit, Windows xp 32bit, Windows 7 32bit, but no luck. It keeps rejecting te x86 NTPRINT

 I have NOT tried Windows 2008 32bit though.

What is the correct method of getting this Phaser 7400 to go?

HP 4250 - Installed 64 + 32
Dell 3355 - Installed 64 + 32

Well its Windows 2008, so why haven't you tried the Windows 2008 32 bit driver?  That should be the very first one to try.

So windows 2008 dvd does not have i386 folder

Also, I tried that method with Windows 7 32. It install on the local machine, but nothing else. Does not do anything for the server itself.

Hi,
some manufactureres dont supply all the required files in the drivers for that.
attached you will find a way to do that. at least it works for some brands.
For Lexmark that file is obtained from the universal driver of the same type (ex: PCL).

If the atached instructions dont work, maybe you shoul ask xerox.
