Specs: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, core 2 duo/2gb
can anyone help me fix this

i have an lj5000 connected to a pc called printserver

its shared on the network and i can browse to it using \\printserver\lj5000

to get a driver installed for it i had to connect it locally using a 25pin to usb cable, so if its connected using the cable its like any other usb cable and prints ok

i want to get the pc to connect to the printserver over the network, if i browse to it using \\printserver\lj5000 i can connect to it then it asks for the driver, in xp i could view a list of preinstalled drivers and then i'd be ok to choose the right one

but win 7 64 bit just asks me for the driver and i dont know where to browse too on the pc to find it, any help appreciated

thanks i've already installed the driver and connected a usb cable to do a local install

the problem is when i try to connect to the shared printer on the pc that's hosting it

windows 7 on the client pc asks for the driver location, which is installed somewhere on the pc but unlike xp you cant click on "have disk"

i hope that claries the problem?
