This is a quick how-to for adding additional print drivers to your print server. This is a very easy method, especially if you have existing computers that are of a different platform than your server and have been able to print. This method does require administrative rights so be prepared to enter your credentials.

For this example I will be adding the x86 drivers to a x64 server. This particular setup is from Windows 7 32-bit to Windows 2008R2 64-bit.

Step 1: Log In

Log into server or workstation that has a current set of drivers that you want to add to your new print server.

Step 2: Run MMC.EXE

Type in the address by either IP address or DNS name of the print server which you want to add additional drivers to, then click Add to List, then Finish. Click OK on the Add/Remove Snap-In Window to return to Console Root view.

    Why wouldn't you just go direct to the server that was acting as your print server? So much easier that way.

    All those steps to install print services, but you don't actually show how to install additional print drivers. The old republic not launching. What a waste of time.

    It was a decent article but I agree with Chris.hone. I am not sure why you wouldn't just open print management. Aside from that either before step 8 or as a note. IF additional drivers is greyed out when you open right-click on the printer and select 'Manage Sharing' You will need to stop sharing the printer close the properties window and reopen it and you should be able then to add additional drivers to the printer selected.
