I have just installed 3 new printers each wich 10 different drivers because of special setups.
The printer vendor has just released new Danish version so now I would like to update the printer drivers from UK to DK language.

Well - this was pretty easy for the "main" x64 driver but I can't change the ADDITIONAL DRIVER under sharing!
I have installed x86 drivers because of the client os's and its very important to update the language on these.

How can I do this without reinstalling approx. 30 printer drivers?

Well - now I have solved this my self - Can't wait on you guys all night! :-)

This is what I did:

- Go to DEVICES AND PRINTERS.
- Hightlight the actual printerdriver
- Press PRINT SERVER PROPERTIES.
- Choose DRIVERS

I this case I needed to update all the 32 bit drivers = x86.
Therefore you mark all x86 drivers one at a time and press REMOVE
Now you have to confirm this a few times.

After this you can go into PRINTER PROPERTIES of the disered printer.
Find SHARING and ADDITIONAL DRIVERS
Now you have cleared the x86 box and can install a new driver :-)
