Problems adding x32 driver on server 2008 R2

Jump to solution

Hey everyone

I'm upgrading our current printserver from server 2003 x32 to a server 2008 R2 x64 bits OS.

In this process we are adding all the drivers and printers manually, and when I'm trying to add the 1700-series (1700, 1710 and 1720) we can add the 64-bit driver without any problems, but when it comes to the x32 bit driver, I get an error message, first about it not being the correct driver for the current processor architecthure (this with the windows 7 x32 driver)

When trying with the Windows 2008 R2 x32 driver I get a request for the file NTprint.inf

This is not added by the driver itself, and is not contained in the file.

 

Any suggestions where to get a hold of this file, or where it might be downloaded? I assume its modeldependant.

Hello

Would just like to inform that I've found the solution:

 

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverprint/thread/59c1d8e4-76f4-415a-9ec1-7046c...

 

As it says, just find the ntprint file at a x86 machine in the root specified. And as it says, once its in, its in.
