I download Print Migrator 3.1 at
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=9b9f2925-cbc9-44da-b2c9-ffdbc46b0b17
Install it on the old printer server (Windows 2003 standard 32-bit).
It 'see' all the printer drivers, but NOT the printers. I back it up and restore it to another Windows 2003 server (32-bit). Again the second Windows 2003 server 'see' all the printer drivers but not the printers.

Q#1. Why does the tool not see the printers?

Q#2. Any other (version of) printer migrator to use?

Q#3. Any settings to check (in order to make it work)?

Thanks.
