    Can I use Win7-64bit driver on 2008R2 server

    Hi all,

    I am moving all my printers from my old 2003 server to server2008R2. The dell printer driver page lists server 2003, xp win732 & 64, but not server2008r2. Can I install the win7 64bit version on the server or will it cause issues?

    Thanks.

    I have done so in the past when a 2008 R2 driver wasnt listed. Worked just fine.

    Shouldn't be a problem.

    Quite handy to learn that. We're lucky that we've not had to do this as most of our printers have been supported with a Windows 2008 R2 driver.
