Problem injecting 64 bit drivers into Windows 2003 32bit server
Posted on 2015-02-03
I am Injecting x64 printers into my 2003 32bit print server.
I built a 2008 r2 (64bit duh) server with a print management role which i want to migrate all 2003 printer to once I have enabled x64 drivers on this 2003 print server.
From the 2008 r2 server i connected to the 2003 print server and was able to inject plenty of x64 bit drivers.
However, for some reason a few drivers don't want to be injected. When I go into sharing and enable the x64 option and navigate to the driver i downloaded ( I am pretty certain its x64 bit and have tried with both PCL and Universal drivers) ...
I get an error stating to install the proper driver " does not contain the driver...for the requested processor architecture"
Is there a better way to inject the drivers into the 2003 server? I have tried to create the printers from scratch on the new 2008 server by creating a new printer. but i receive an error stating the port already exist. I don't see the port listed, but I did already ran the Printer Migration Tool...any how i dont think this is the problem..
Please advise if I am taking the wrong approach by injecting the x64 drivers into the 32 bit system from the x64 bit server?
thanks in advance
