    Adobe Creative Suite 5 is 64-bit only, so you've got no choice if you plan on using new version of Photoshop, Dreamweaver etc.

    No not true. Premiere and After effects are 64-bit only but they give you the CS4 versions of those as well. So you can run those if you have 32-bit. Photoshop, Dreamweaver etc run fine on 32-bit

    If manufacturers can't be bothered to write 64 bit drivers, the manufacturers won't get their drivers signed by Microsoft. The moral of the story here is, don't buy cheap unbranded crap and you'll be ok!

    16 bit compatibility has indeed been removed from 64 bit windows. The only way to get it back it to use a virtualisation package. Even AppV won't help you there.

    Would you call Epson cheap unbranded crap? I just found out the hard way they donít support 64-bit and the drivers they have don't work. I figured I would upgrade our server to Win Server 2008 64-bit and no clients can print to it due to the lack of workinig driver support.

    Itís not just the cheap unbranded stuff there is a surprising amount of larger brands that donít offer support. Some offer drivers but not support if the drivers fail to work.

    How old are the printers in question?

    Not sure on age. It’s the Epson AcuLaser C4200DTN one of the main laser printers they sell. There are no newer or better replacement versions.

    If it is still a current model it is just not good enough from the supplier, my view of epsons quality is not particularly high but I would suggest emailing, ringing and complaining bitterly to their support, forums, sales team demanding support for a modern OS.

    Edit: looks like the drivers do exist:

    The drivers do exist but when we tried them they didn’t work. First we used the Epson chat screen and they said the drivers are not officially supported. Next we rang up and got the same message. There was zero interest in helping us to get the drivers working.

    Would Xerox's universal printer driver be worth trying? The link below is to the 64-bit version for Windows 7.

    The drivers that @synack links to claim to be WHQL certified - I'd be a bit disturbed at them not working (or perhaps I'm just too optimistic about the driver cert process; is it one of these things which just checks the correctness of the code rather than checking that the code does what it's supposed to do??)

    Just checked in Windows itself - a driver is included for an Epson AL C4200 which I'd guess is the Aculaser C4200??? Do those drivers not work?? What problem are you having??

    32-bit works fine but when I try and print from 64-bit the work appears in the print queue and vanishes as though it’s been sent to the printer. But nothing comes out. Both me and a support tech from county tried and failed to get it working and Epson just say its not supported.
