    Question Windows Update vs. HP 2600n Printer

    Hi folks,

    We've been having a few printing issues, potentially related to the HP 2600n printer.

    Coincidentally a recent Windows Update showed a driver update for the 2600n printer, dated Feb 2013.

    This update appeared on some of our servers (32 bit), but ironically not our main print server which is where the issues lie (64 bit). Of course we can install 32 bit drivers on the 64 bit server for use by 32 bit machines, which again is where the trouble seems to lie.

    Anyone know how we can get hold of the driver update package that was on the 32 bit servers, so we can add it into print management on the 64 bit server?

    TIA

    OK, I found it in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\Install on one of the 32 bit servers. I saved out the folder somewhere else, pointed the 64 bit server's Print Management > Add Driver to it, and have updated the driver. Fingers crossed this solves it.

    For reference, and Google searches, the old driver is 5.0.1.32926. The new driver is 5.0.1.62126.
