Extracting the Driver Package:

NOTE: You will notice three different driver sets in the language folder. The Winx64 drivers should be used for 64-bit Windows operating systems. The other two packages are system level drivers (PCL and PS) for 32-bit Windows operating systems. These drivers are for use in mixed operating system environments where a 64-bit print server supports 32-bit clients.
