Solved Printer Drivers Not Installing On Windows 7

Specs: Windows 7 Professional
I recently upgraded a couple of machines here in the office, and now I'm having trouble getting the new machines to download the drivers properly from the print server. They're connected to the domain and are able to see the right printers in Active Directory, but when trying to connect it says that it can't find the drivers. We're running the printers off of Windows Server 2003 and their computers are using Windows 7 Professional. Thanks!

✔ Best Answer
You'll probably have to manually install the drivers are each machine. Go to the printer manufacturer's website & download the appropriate Win7 drivers for your printer model.

That worked, thanks! Is there any way to put different versions of the drivers on the print server and have them distribute properly? For example, load an XP version and a Win 7 x86 version and a Win 7 x64 version of the driver for a printer and then have the print server give the correct version whenever a computer tries to connect?
