SBS 2011 Standard Migration Problem - Network Printer

  I just migrated a customer who was running a W2K3 Standard Server over to SBS 2011 Standard. Went well. They had a shared Laserjet 4250 (network printer) on their old server at SBS 2011 came with a Laserjet 4250 driver so I installed and shared that at

   The problem I seem to be having is installing addition drivers for that printer so I can drop it on XP workstations. The choice I pick for addition drivers is X86 but everything I have downloaded generates an error about no drivers for the X86 architecture could be found. How and what drivers do I need to add to this printer so XP workstations will find it and let me drop it on them?

  Tried that first. Doesn't work. Anything specfic to SBS 2011? That was 2008 and it might make a difference...

It isn't. Doesn't work. It went through the paces, not errors but no printer either.

Thanks ronnypot. I deleted the driver that came with SBS and downloaded both the 32 abd 64 -bit from HP. Worked like a dream.

No problem! Printer drivers could be really tricky certain with older type printers.
