Printer problems
Vista 64 will not accept additional drivers when setting up a network
printer. On my laptop I can install it using "local printer" but when I try
and install using "network printer" I get message not suitable driver. The
driver worked w/ XP32pro before I got Vista, now it does not work at all. I
check the box "x86" (for 32 bit, right?) and nothing.
Thanks

Re: Printer problems
I guess I'd need some clarification here
Is your laptop running Vista x64?

Or the server is running Vista x64 and you are trying to connect to it from
a laptop running x86 version of the OS ?

On a side note, on Vista x64, you can only install signed drivers developed
specifically for x64.
