I have a 32 bit Windows XP computer with a installed Epson R200 printer. I shared this printer and want to use it with a 64 bit Windows 7 system, now.

But the problem is, that the Windows 7 client didn't find a driver for that printer. If I plug the printer directly to the Windows 7 system it works without problems.

Any idea how I can share this printer correctly?

When sharing printer for multiple systems that diffrentiate between themselfs you need to install Additional drivers. Here's a helpful article that should get you started.

Basically you need to download from a website drivers for both 32/64bit and then install printer on your XP with 32bit drivers. Then in Printer properties under sharing Tab you find additional drivers list where you need to choose right drivers and install them properly.
