    Panasonic 64bit drivers

    As all new laptops to us are now 64bit (we are running server 2003 and server 2008 r2) I thiught I had best install the 32 and 64 bit drivers on to the new server and use that for our printe server instead of the 2003 32bit one. Anyway cant get it to print, installed seemingly fine, try a test print, it goes through the process, see it flash in the print que then nothing comes out. Works fine on the 2003 server. Even tried it on a 64 bit laptop and installed driver on that laptop and no joy. Technical said it has to be LPR with an LPR que name of LP, which I have done and still no joy. Anyone had any dealings with this? Or is there something I should look out for specifically when installing a printer on 2008 64 or w7 64?

    seen this before - its usually the wrong driver. Even though you have the 32 and 64 bit drivers installed, try a different 64 bit driver. Some manufacturers have got slightly different drivers for Server 2008, Windows 7 and Vista. The Vista ones usually work with Win7 so maybe try that? I have messed around with different versions printer drivers and usually get it working in the end!

    Thanks, have not really the time these days to allow me to mess around trying different ones so passed it back to suppliers who support it. Will keep this updated.
