Re: 64-bit server, 32-bit client
This is a real pain that I came across too! What you need to do is download
the 32- bit driver, install it on one of the 32-bit systems, then (on your
64 bit system) add the driver for the 32 systems by pointing to the relevant
32-bit directory contents (probably have to copy them to the 64 bit system
first). You can then uninstall the 32-bit driver (and whatever else it
installed) from the 32 bit system. Then you can install the printer on each
of the 32-bit systems as you would normally expect to.
