I'm having trouble sharing an HP LaserJet 1300 series printer, installed on Windows 7, with a computer running Windows XP on the local network (or vice-versa). The problem seems to be related to the additional printer drivers Windows exposes to remote computers.

Could there be anyone with some information about how I can install additional drivers for x64 processor of type3 -user mode?

My Windows7 computer has x86 type3-usermode driver already installed but the x64 is giving me problem and I understand I need to install it before I share the printer with a computer installed with windows XP.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

If you are sharing a printer from a x86 machine to x64 machines you have to package the correct x64 driver for the printer on the machine hosting the printer.

Go to Printers Right Click the Printer in Question Printer Properties Sharing Tab Additional Drivers

Then browse for the x64 versions of the drivers.

Hope this helps.
