Hi, I have exhausted all options/methods I can think of trying to install HP LaserJet P4515n x86 print drivers to my Server 2008 R2 Printer Management role console.
I have downloaded them directly from HP's website. I tried the drivers on the CD that came with the printer. I tried finding the drivers on the client PC (Windows XP Pro). All with no luck. I have the x64 drivers installed just fine, but cannot get the x86 drivers.
Well, I must explain further. I was able to get the x86 drivers to install in the Drivers node list of the Printer Management console. The problem is I cannot add them to the printer in the Printers node list. I have the printer installed on the server based on the x64 drivers. But everytime I try to install the x86, it says it cannot find drivers for it.
I have tried recreating the printer within the Printer Management console and when it creates it, it only gives it the x64 drivers, which means I am back to where I started.
I have confirmed the same version of print drivers I am trying to load to the server is the same driver version on the clients (XP Pro) systems.
The only other thing I can think of is to contact HP about this issue.
I know the Printer Management on Server 2008 R2 works with x86 drivers, because I have an old HP LaserJet 5000N & HP LaserJet 4350N installed just fine.
Any ideas or suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
