    Upgrading print drivers for Win7 (server 2003)

    Hi,

    I have looked through the forums and done a few searches and am struggling to find the answer to my question.

    We have a new suite of Win7 x64 machines. We have a Server on 2003 as our print server.

    I have downloaded the appropriate drivers to the server but need to add them as additional drivers, I can do this from print management -> print servers -> printers -> manage sharing -> additional drivers.

    The problem is that on 'version' column there are no Vista / Win7 options to tick, they are all 2003, XP or NT options......unsure what to do really?

    Any advice would be useful....

    Thanks a lot

    Just use the option for x64 drivers, there is no seporate filter for Vista/7 drivers and it will just use whatever ones are avalible for the platform (x32, x64). It works fine though if you have the right drivers, sometimes you need to have matching versions of the drivers between platforms so I would suggest grabbing the latest drivers for both 32bit and 64 bit systems and having both at the latest versions avalible for the minimun of problems.
