Server 2012 sharing printer?

We moved to a new 2012 server. I'm trying to push out Printers through Group policy. I've got all that set up and its working but I still have some 32 bit Win 7 PC's and even a few still XP. So for the printers I need both the 64 and 32 bit drivers installed. I know about the install additional drivers spot and am trying that but no matter what I do it says "if the folder contains a driver make sure its designed to work with Windows x64-based systems"

Thats the problem its NOT designed for 64 bit thats the point. I've checked and rechecked i have the same name and version drivers for all the printers yet it won't take any of the 32 bit ones. I feel I'm missing something simple here and was hoping someone else had run into this.

Sometimes if the manufacturer is lazy, the printer driver is not properly written, to be installed as "additional driver". Sometimes the only way is to hope a universal driver (meant for a whole series of printers, still from the manufacturer, sometimes missing advanced or model specific features) will work. Either this driver download contains both 32 and 64 bits drivers inside already, or download them separately, but rather from the same version.
