    I'm not understanding what it is that you want to achieve.

    If i want to check which printer driver i hav installed i can either right click the server in print management and select properties then click on the drivers tab. That will list all the drivers loaded on the server.

    Right click the printer and select properties then click on the advanced tab and it will tell you what driver is installed. Also clicking on the sharing tab and then the additional drivers tab will tell you if you have x86 and x64 drivers loaded.

        If you select one of the printers, the menu along the grey bar changes and you can access server properties from there, allowing you to delete any drivers that are listed.

        [Edit]
        I just checked this on my 64bit Win2008 server and the server properties are visible even without selecting a printer

          Hi,

          I doubt that your windows 2008 r2 x64 is a print server. Usually you will get server properties and all the printers in print server console that comes when you install print server role.

          Please try to install the role and then check for drivers.
          Thanks & Regards
