Re: Installing HP Laserjet on Windows XP - Shared on Vista Ultimate

Hey guys, I have an HP 3030PS unit sitting on a windows xp pro pc with the non-universal drivers installed, and I'm trying to install the universal x64 driver on the server 2003 x64 box to have it show up on the terminal services...I cannot find the "devicename" section in the .inf files...any suggestions?

I got 'er, here's the lowdown...

Here's how I pulled it off:

1. Add the printer on the server as a local printer (uncheck the plug and play box) using the x64 driver

2. change the port to the proper network location

3. when the hp universal plug and play software (that you should have already installed, if not, do it now) will come up and ask you where the printer is at, use the UNC code of it's location i.e. \\computername\printername

and there's a checkbox on that page that tells the HP software to make this a permanent printer in "printer and faxes", make sure that's checked...now you're good to go ;)
