How to Install 64-bit "Generic / Text Only" print driver on a 32-bit Windows 2003 Server?

Hi All,
In a nutshell, I need to Install the 64-bit Generic / Text Only print driver on a 32-bit Windows 2003 Server’s “Generic / Text Only 32-bit print queue.
The problem is that there is no Driver-Disk to get the drivers. I’ve been able to isolate 14 files related to the 64 bit drivers from a Windows 7 x64 computer and copy them to a temp folder on the Windows 2003 x32 server. When I try to add the 64 bit driver
to the Windows 2003 x32 server,  it wants a *.inf file, which I don’t have and can’t find.
Because Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP, my client is replacing all of their Point-of-Sale Windows XP x32 systems with Windows 7 x64. They use Terminal Services (Remote Desktop) to connect to a Windows 2003 x32 server to use the POS system. The
POS software redirects LPT1 back to the local Generic / Text Only printer. This works great for XP x32.
When we use the Terminal Services POS software on the new Windows 7 x64 system, none of the labels print out because it’s redirected in 32-bit back to the local Windows 7 x64 Generic / Text Only 64-bit printer.
This will be a huge issue for me if I can’t get this to work.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions and help! -Rob

  • X86 Generic/Text Only Printer Driver

    Ive got a HP Thin Client that I need to setup a Epson TM88 Receipt printer on.
    The issue is the software will only recognise this printer if its setup with the Generic/Text Only Windows Printer Driver which HP decided not to include in the standard image for the device.
    Its running Windows 7 Embedded 32Bit.
    Now ive looked online and seen heaps of people saying just install on a 32bit pc and then share it to get the driver.  trouble is every other pc and server is 64bit and I cant do that.
    even my home pc's are 64 bit so no option there.
    Does anyone know if there is a download available anywhere online for the .inf file to make this work?
    Alternatively can anyone specify the location and file name for the driver file so I can at least know where to look if I can find someone who has Win7 x86 installed?

    In Internet Explorer go to
    http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx  The Update Catalog will not work in any other browser.
    Type Generic/Text Only in the Search box in the upper right and click on Search.
    Results should be:
    http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=Generic%2FText%20Only
    The second listing with only Windows 8,Windows 8.1 Drivers is the x86 driver.  Although it states Windows 8 the version is 6.1.7600.16385 and dated  6/21/2006.

  • Generic / Text Only printer crashes FM10

    In Windows 7 64-bit SP-1, selecting the Generic / Text Only printer with a document open or selecting it and then opening a document crashes FrameMaker 10 with the following error:
    Error
    Internal Error 10024, 7687720, 7688010, 10076471. FrameMaker has detected a serious problem and must quit.

    OK  
    Suggestions? I don't have a copy of 32-bit Windows to test on.

    How about if you configure an old daisywheel printer? (and you might have to get the driver from MS, they've dropped a lot of legacy stuff from the install media and images) If it works, you could probably render to PDF, then get Acrobat to cough up the plain text.
    Using primitive printer GDIs used to work in Frame, and was entertaining to observe, because Frame would constrain itself to the currently "installed" type wheel/ball font-wise, and the spacing limitations of the printer.
    I never played with it enough to see what would happen if you attempted something impossible for the printer, like rotated text in a table.

  • How to connect to Window 2003 server using "connect as"

    How can I set up Lion to easily connect to specified shares in the windows 2003 server. I want to authenticate as a user other than the one I am logged into on my Macbook? I am setting this up for teachers in a school. The macbook may be used by multiple teachers. Best way (simplest) please.

    Hi
    Let's pretend the Windows Server has an IP address of 10.10.10.254
    Go Menu > Connect to Server > smb://10.10.10.254. When prompted enter the account credentials of a user (username and password) that exists on the Windows Server. Alternatively you could use cifs://10.10.10.254. Either one will do. Assuming no 'silliness' on the Windows Network Administrator's part the share should mount.
    For ease of connectivity afterwards you could tick the 'remember password using keychain manager' box. Personally I find keychain manager more trouble than it's worth. However you deal with this as you see fit. If it's multiple users using the same workstation I would not enable the option.
    Once mounted you can view the Server Share on the user's Desktop by enabling the option in the Finder. It should appear as a blue-ish drive icon on the Desktop. Add the icon in that User's Login Items in the Accounts Preferences Pane. Think of it a little like the Windows equivalent of "mapping a network drive".
    Next time that user logs into their local account and provided the workstation is connected to the same network, the share point should mount.
    You could also or alternatively drag the share icon to the right hand side of Dock. Click on it to re-connect to the share after you've disconnected from it.

  • Firefox printing incorrectly to printer with Generic /Text Only driver

    I have a printer that uses the Generic / Text Only driver, and everytime I try and print to it with Firefox, a carrage return is added after every space. For example this text:
    <pre><nowiki><
    875 000 096 099
    >
    </nowiki></pre>
    Gets printed like this:
    <pre><nowiki><
    875
    000
    096
    099
    ></nowiki></pre>
    The text gets printed correctly if I use IE9 or notepad. Any suggestions?

  • Installing problem on Windows 2003 Server 64 bit

    Dear All,
    I'am trying to install XE onto a Windows 2003 Server 64 bit.. The installation process ends without any errors but the database itself seems not to start.
    I tried several hints that have been mentioned here within the forum. But none of them worked. While experimenting I saw that there is not a single registry entry of Oracle within HKEY_LOCAL_MASCHINE\Software .
    Is there a possiblity to set those needed registry entries manually? Is there a script for that purpose?
    Thank you very much for your help!
    Regards
    Matthias

    Hi,
    thank you for your reply. As 32bit programs should run under Windows 64bit I thought the XE should run under 64bit, too.
    The installation of XE itself seems to finish without any errors. But within the log files it can be read that the database has not started up due to a out of memory problem. This causes many log entries within all other logfiles as no database could be created.
    The out of memory problem might be the same as within Advice on running XE on a small virtual Linux host ("Virtuozzo") because I am using a virtual windows 2003 server with "Virtuozzo", too.
    At this time I am on discussing the issue with the provider. Maybe I will get a dedicated server with Windows Server 2003 64bit. Hopefully the XE could be installed on the 64bit Windows Server because 32bit dedicated servers are rare.
    Best regards
    Matthias

  • Oracle 10g install on Windows 2003 Server 32-bit

    As far as I can tell there doesn't appear to be an Oracle10g download for 10.2.0.4 for Windows 2003 Server. It looks like you have to download 10.2.0.1 for Windows then apply the patch to bring it up to 10.2.0.4. Am I seeing this correctly or am I missing something?
    Thanks!

    Indeed you are; your eyes are definitely not lying to you. 10.2.0.4 is a patchset which can only be applied to an already existing Oracle Home.

  • How to install 11.5.10 on VMWare with Windows 2003 Server?

    Need help on installing 11.5.10 on VMWare which runs Windows 2003 Server.
    I've XP Pro laptop with 2GB RAM and 80GB HDD and external HD with 250GB. Gathered all required s/w for installation.
    The Win 2003 Server VMWare is sitting on the external HD. I want to install pre-req s/w along with 11.5.10 on the VMWare.
    (1) How do I make the laptop's CD drive and HD visible to the VMWare?
    (2) Can I use the XP laptop HD as staging area and install on VMWare on external HD?
    (3) What are the disadvantages/risks of using the external HD for both staging and actual installation?
    Any help is appreciated.
    FYI - we already have an Oralce 11.5.9 on VMWare. All services are up and running. Able to logon to SQL*Plus and EBS home page. The issue is, we are not able to connect to this Oralce VMWare image from other VMWare image(Siebel), ie, if we do a telnet to oracle vmware image connection establishes and closes immediately. No clue on why this is happening. But this is not happening when we did telnet from a vmware image(plain win 2003 server) that does not have Siebel. All vmware images work fine individually.
    Any inputs?
    Thx,
