Windows Server 2003 R2 32bit Print Server supporting Vista 64 bit
I apologize if this question has been asked before but what is the trick to
support Vista 64 bit print drivers and queues from a "legacy" Windows Server
2003 R2 32bit print server?

Is there a “how-to” document from Microsoft?

I need to be able to allow 64bit Vista users to just double click a printer
on 2003 (32bit) and have the queue and driver seamless create/download just
like we do with XP 32bit.

Sound easy but I cannot get the drivers to upload to the 2003 print server
for Vista x64.

Any ideas?

Re: Windows Server 2003 R2 32bit Print Server supporting Vista 64 bit
Are you using the inbox x64 Vista drivers or vendor drivers?

When first selecting the driver, check x64, then point to the inf file with
the x64 drivers. Inbox and vendor drivers will need to also copy the x64
pscript5 or unidrv files to the server. These files are not normally
included with vendor drivers since they ship with the OS and you will be
prompted for the files during the driver install.

The easiest way to do this is add the drivers remotely to the Server 2003
machine using a Vista x64 client logged on with a user that has admin rights
on the print server.

Launch printmanagement.msc and add the print server to the management
snapin. Expand the server node and add the driver in the Drivers node.

the x64 driver name must match the x86 driver name. If you are using some
drivers from Server 2003, HP changed several of their driver names in Vista
so they don't match.

What driver are you using if not inbox?

Re: Windows Server 2003 R2 32bit Print Server supporting Vista 64
thank you Alan

I think this might work but I also think we will just go ahead and upgrade
our Print servers to 2003 R2 64bit. We run them in VMware so it is an easy
transition.

I guess now my new question is is there any issues having a 64bit print
server supporting mostly 32 bit clients?

Re: Windows Server 2003 R2 32bit Print Server supporting Vista 64
The driver support has come a long way since Microsoft rolled out our first
x64 print server. Drivers were the main issue.


Printmig.exe does not recognize the x64 drivers. If you use this tool, the
printer information migrates but one has to install the x64 drivers on the
server and restart the spooler for the printers to show up.

x64 is a great print server platform. The server can handle a greater
client load and the jobs are processed quickly but I don't have any perf
data on this just experience.

Re: Windows Server 2003 R2 32bit Print Server supporting Vista 64 bit

I am having trouble with this as well. I am running Vista Business 64
Bit trying to print to a shared hp Laserjet 1300 that is running on
Windows server 2003. I have tried to load drivers from my machine using
print manager, yada, yada, yada. My collegue is running 32 bit Vista and
he can point and print to it. Any help would be appreciated!

Does the 32 bit driver use the same name as the 64 bit version of the print
driver?

Re: Windows Server 2003 R2 32bit Print Server supporting Vista 64 bit

Hank -

Unless you have the original disk from the printer - and I'm guess it
doesn't have drivers for Vista - you're best bet is going to be to
switch to the universal print driver on the 1300.

It seems that the only 64-bit driver that HP is making available is the
UPD - you can determine if PCL5, PCL6, or PS is the best for you.

If the driver names don't match, you can't install the 64-bit driver on
the 32-bit system - it won't regonize it as a valid driver.

I know, I'm having the same problem with every one of my printers on my
32-bit Server 2003 systems (about 150 print servers, with an average of
6 printers per server!). All drivers installed are the original drivers
from HP, and the only thing they offer for Vista and 64-bit systems is
the UPD. I now have to remove and upgrade to the UPD for all of my
systems......for about 3 dozen Vista and 64-bit users!

Thanks,

I don't have the disk and I'm trying the UPD with no luck either. We
have other Vista machines (32 bit) and they seem to be able to point and
install. Not so with 64 bit!

Re: Windows Server 2003 R2 32bit Print Server supporting Vista 64 bit
A Remote Procedure Call connection (RPC) is not going to work in this case
since the driver names do not match.

You have a couple quick options.

1) Install the x86 Vista driver for this device onto the print server and
install a new (or change the current queue to use the Vista driver but HP
does not recommend this) queue for the device. When the driver name
matches, the x64 Vista machine will install the local driver for the
connection.

2) Create a Local Port in the form \\printserver\printer where printer is
the share name (avoid using spaces in the share name ) on the x64 machine
and use this port for a Local Printer that uses the Vista x64 driver. This
basically just copies the formatted for printer data to the share as if you
had printed to file and copied the file to the print share.
