Here's a head scratcher.I installed a printer on a server 03 machine.Shared it out with 32 bit drivers.Some clients will want to connect but need 64 bit drivers. I went to install additional drivers for the printer. The 64 bit check box was there.I checked it and browsed out to the folder that contained the 64 bit drivers. When opening the folder there was nothing there.The drivers are there but do not appear when trying to install the additional drivers.
