Adding addiional Printer Drivers?
Just updated the drivers of our shared printer on the server which is 64bit to the latest version but I also want to update the 32bit additional drivers we already have for it. Gone into additional drivers, the 32bit are ticked but greyed out. How do I update them to the latest version or are they already done as I updated the 64bit? As you can tell, a bit new to this!

On 2008 R2, open Print Management then expand Print Servers > SERVERNAME > Drivers.
You can add x86 and x64 drivers as well as remove drivers from here.

Thanks, I'll have a look at that, presume it does not matter that the printer is only shared out and not distributed using the new features of 2008? We use a logon script to give the printer to pupils etc.

I couldn't say, it depends on your script. I suppose you could argue this is a good reason to use 2008/2008 R2's Print Management, as it will intelligently use the right driver for x86 and x64 versions of Windows.
