64bit Windows 7 can be a pain in the neck with networked printers
The easiest way I found is to Add printer, local printer, new port.
In the new port box type \\[Server name]\[Printer name].
Make sure its exactly as it appears, including spaces.
Follow the rest of the prompts, select the correct print driver (windows should have it on the list) and don't setup sharing.
Its worked for me.
Thank you for that!
I have fooled around before with all sorts of solutions that didn't quite work. This time it did. The trick was to not try to use an XP driver, but a 'local' printer that's really on the network somewhere ...
I had to alter my choice of driver though. The PostScript driver for the 2800 series Color LaserJets did the thing. Sillily enough, because it didn't when I tried exactly that driver last year. A test installation on my personal laptop worked, so now my Systems Manager can copy the settings straight off.
Now, I only have to crack the problems we have with the software ported from the Macintosh world, but I will not bother you with that bowl of entangled spaghetti.
Thanx to all involved from Gagnef, Sweden!
You were fast, patient and helpful.
