Windows 2008 - HP Laserjet 2100 PCL6



I have a number of HP Laserjet 2100 which I can install onto our 64bit Windows 2008 servers.  However when I try to install additional drivers for x86 systems and direct the dialog box to the location where the drivers have been unzipped to I receive the following message -


The specified location does not contain the driver HP LaserJet 2100 PCL6 for the requested processor architecture.


The driver I've downloaded is lj2100pcl5ewin2kxp2003-en.exe


Any help would be great.

You have to add the additional drivers from an x86 workstation.  To do this I navigated to the "Printers and Faxes" share on the domain controller or printer server.  Right clicked on the printer in question, select properties, click sharing, click additional drivers, put a tick against the operating system you wish to install the driver for then following the prompts.
