I have a psc2210 connected to a win7 Home premium 64bit system. It is shared and I need to connect a win7 32bit system to it. WHen I try to connect from the 32 bit system, it sees the printer, but then fails on the driver install. When I try to download the additional driver on the 64bit system, it asks for a location. I have no idea where to tell it to look. There is nothing to downlaod from the HP site because they say all the drivers are included with win7. I tried the networking wizard, but it fails to see the printer on the network from the 32bit side.

Try the following: on the 32 bit Windows 7 machine go to Start, Devices and Printers, Add a Printer, Local Printer, Create a Port, Local Port, \\Computername\Printername (use the actual share name for the computer and printer), OK, then click on Windows Update, wait a few minutes for the update to complete, then select HP (not Hewlett Packard) and select the PSC 2200 series.
