Group Policy - Printer mapping 32bit and 64 bit driver

Hello,

We have 2 servers running 2008 R2 64 bit
they are both domain controllers

A Xerox 7345 printer is installed on one of the DCs and its shared

It is configured to be pushed with a GPO using the "Deployed printers" under user configuration in the GPO editor

In our environment we have  xp 32 bit and vista/7 64 bit desktop operating systems

this works fine for users that have vista/7 64 bit operating system

but for users that are running 32 bit it doesnt work, it wont take the driver

my question is..
how can I set it up so both platforms map the printer at logon?
how to setup both drivers on the server and configure it to choose the right one?

should I create a GPO using a WMI filter ?
if so..
what would the WMI filter query be like ?

Have you added the x86 driver to the printer? Go to PRINTER PROPERTIES -- SHARING -- ADDITIONAL DRIVERS

yes, its there
I actually just realized that other printers are installed and shared, and they are working for both platforms

So I guess I have to make sure both drivers (32bit and 64 bit) are installed properly

for some reason I cant make it work

they are both checked under additional drivers (x64 and x86)

You could download the latest driver for both and update it.
