Print from 32 bit machine to 64 bit machine
Posted on 2012-09-19
Two computers on our network are running Windows 7.
One has the 64 bit version of the Windows 7 OS installed. Computer name is: comp1. It has an HP 2100 printer installed. It's connected via a USB cable. It's shared with a sharename of: 64bit. So, the path to the shared printer should be: \\comp1\64bit.
The other has the 32 bit version of the Windows 7 OS installed. No matter if I "browse" for the printer or type in the path as shown in the first paragraph, the printer will NOT install.
I suppose I should either install the 32 bit driver on the 64 bit machine or install the 64 bit driver on the 32 bit machine. However, the HP website offers neither the 32 bit or the 64 bit driver on its website for download.
