Printer migration from Win Server 03 x86 To Win Server 08 x64

I need to migrate all printers from a windows server 2003 to a win server 2008.
is there a solution to automate this ? my actual tries failed because of x86 to x64.

Hi, what you need is an old microsoft application that called printer migration tool 3.1. It isnt supported anymore but works (as long as you dont have over a few 100 printers (it stores everything as a CAB file when moving so if you have too many then the cab file grows over its maximum size and the app crashes).

i tried printmig but this doesn't work in this environment, i think because of missing drivers on the win 2k3 server
