  • Install HP 4100 on SBS 2008

    I think I'm having the same issue. I have an old HP 4100 on a SBS2k8 server and the XP users can not connect to the printer because of x64/x86 driver issues.

    Then as per my previous post, install the correct drivers on the server and clients, ensure XP is up to date, and take this up with HP if you still have a problem.

      I'm not sure about the O/P but the problem I am running into is the stock drivers on the server are not compatible with x86 systems and downloading the latest drivers for the HP only supply a "universal" pack with an executable but I really don't want to go to each workstation and run this thing, I want to use the GPOs....

      I read in the server 2k8 board that you can right click on the printer from the workstation and their should be a "add driver" option. I am going to try this out tomorrow and see if this works.

            Sorry I didn't think it was a Hi-Jack sense it sounded like Nitro and I were experiencing the same issue.

            Yeah, it's like that but their new system; wanted to use this to manage my printers but after signing back up with experts exchange I come to find out some HP drivers just don't work on 2k8 x64. Which is awesome because I just spent $12.95 for nothing really....

            Update:
            I tried to install using the hp "universal printer" exe; once I get though to the point where I can ad drivers I get a 0x0000007e "Operation could not be completed" error... weird... I'm thinking the best way around this is a 2k3 server as a member in vmware running the printers until MS or HP release some kind of patch... I've read of this happening with other drivers from xerox and Nitro's glitch in the other thread my still be something along these lines...

                If I had not properly conveyed that I had been getting the drivers from HPs site I apologize for not making myself more clear. In the context of the thread this was split off from it made more sense has the other user and I had done similar things, like download the newest drivers (as executable installers).

                I still believe this to be more of an Microsoft problem then a HP problem and I plan on finding some contact info on the technet "edge" site and pass an email to the SBS team.

                  Just FYI
                  Normally when you get to an Experts Exchange via a search engine, just scroll way, way, WAY down, past all the adverts, and you find the real info
