Hi all,

Have some problems here with installing 64b printer drivers to a 32b printer

Want to add 64b drivers for the below HP Laserjet printer:


I only managed to make the 64b drivers available on the 32b prn server with
the 4300DTN, which had real drivers available at the HP-web. The other (older)
printers only had the HP Universal Printer drivers for x64. 

Using the universal 64b printer drivers on the 32b printer server only yields
an error where it says it couldn't find a suitable driver.

Would you guys know if there are any gotchas' doing this at all?

I also noticed that WinXP x64 for which I try to do this, already have those
older printer drivers bundled, but how do I make them available to the 32b
printer server?

Could anybody hint me please?
