    When a printer is now added on the server and we use the Universal Print driver, both the 64 & 32bit versions of the driver are made available to the client, but only the relevent one is used, according to the client architecture.
    I've just been moving printers over too a new server which is running 2008 R2, I just added the HP Universal Print driver 32-Bit Driver to the Print Server section then added the 64-bit, I then added installed\added the printer to the server where it then installed both 32\64-bit drivers at the same time, didnt need to use a 32-bit client.
