How can I modify 64-bit driver printing preferences on 32-bit computers

Last Modified: 2013-05-06
Hi everyone

We have a Windows 2008 64-bit server that has a printer installed and shared. Both drivers (64 and 32 bits) are installed.

On the 64-bit server, we set the printing preferences and defaults to black and white only.

When a 32-bit client installs the printer (\\servername\printer), he constantly print in color.
When a 64-bit client installs the printer same way, he defaults to b/w.

So my question is: how to set the printing preferences of my 32-bit driver on a 64-bit server?
