On a certain machine I installed a Dell 2355dn Laser MFP printer, now how can I find out what files on the hard drive are used as drivers to access the printer.

I assume they must be under c:\windows\system32\drivers, right?

I know DriverView from NirSoft that lists all drivers on the system, but I did not find any Dell drivers?

Any ideas how to list them?

If the thing is configured in Device Manager, then you can find which driver is being used on one of the tabs of its properties.

In my case the drivers for one of my network printers were located in system32\spool.

To find out, I opened the printer porperties in DeviceManager/PrintQueues/[14]
