asked on

server 2008 printer driver

i am installing a new win 7 64 bit machine onto the network and have discovered that the exisiting printer driver for a canon is only for win xp machine.
the printer is setup as a shared printer on the server.
i got a new driver to suit the canon mfp however i dont know what the best approach is to installing it onto the server?
if i install the new driver I am afriad that i will knock out any existing settings!

if it is a new driver for Window 7 machine then you have no choice but to install it for those machines to work.

Why not copy the existing driver somewhere safe and then install the new one.

Actually, once you install then you have a choice in a drop down menu to select either.

just for reference: >>
