Problem getting drivers for HP Deskjet 6940
Posted on 2012-08-23
We have an HP DeskJet 6940, which we are setting up on the LAN. We are trying to run it off our Win 2008 SR2 64bit file server and share it for XP 32 bit workstations.
HP have cunningly changed all their downloads, to "intelligent" files, so we can no longer locate an extractable file for the inf's
The printer installs perfectly from the server, without any need for inf, but it loads a 64 bit driver. Sharing an XP installation of the 6940 and connecting from the server will load a 32bit instance on the server, but it's not available as an inf.
Does anyone know an alternate location for the 32 bit inf file for this model, so that I can tell the 64 bit server to use the additional driver ? Alternately, how to tell the server where to find an inf on an already-installed XP workstation ?
Thank you in advance
