make sure to uninstall it and reinstall it with 64bit driver!

on the pc where printer is installed is having windows professional 32 bit os , should I install same os on this pc also ?
please advice

on the pc you got the error it's 64bit, possible way to fix these things is to get 64bit driver for the printer and install it on that system instead of 32bit driver you're using.
