So as topic mentions, I have a print server on a Windows 2003 Server Installed on that that I have a Xerox Workstation 7345.

I wish to create another print queue on that Xerox Workstation.. so I thought I would just do 'add Printer'.. these are the steps I take, and what happens.

Add Printer -> network Printer -> Find printer "I search for the name and It finds it, with full name" -> do you wish to add this printer? -> Finished.

but I still only have that 1 printer added.. its like it just confirms the one I already have.. I figured it might be because it has the exact same name as the printer already added, but I don't get any option of changing that name..

I think you can trick it - try adding a new instance with the incorrect print driver and a different printer name, and then after it is installed change the driver to the appropriate one.

Hey I'm not sure how, It won't allow me to add a printer unless I pick one from the list.. and the ones on the list I pick from are the ones already installed... so evil circle on that one. – Allan Jul 20 '12 at 8:44
When you install it, are you not prompted for a driver location? If so, choose manually and choose Generic – Dave Jul 20 '12 at 8:47
no I'm not.. I select After I pick 'network printer.. I get the following choices "Find printer" <- The one I use "Connect to a printer, Name" "Connect to a printer, URL" when I pick 'find printer'.. it lists the one I have already installed, and when I select one of those it just tells me it has been added with that name.. I took some screenshots : – Allan Jul 20 '12 at 8:58
