Sharing HP LaserJet on XP to Windows 7 64 Machine

Last Modified: 2012-04-20
We have a Windows XP machine that is sharing a HP LaserJet 4014n over the network.

We just purchased a Windows 7 64 machine that is also on the same network.  We downloaded the Windows 7 64 universal driver (PS, PCL5, PCL6) for it, ran the installer, and it finds the printer, but when we point it to the directory that was expanded by the installer, it says no suitable driver found (or something to that likeness).

What are we doing wrong?
