Windows 7: Cannot print to a "Shared" Printer on Win 7 Ultimate 64

Cannot print to a "Shared" Printer on Win 7 Ultimate 64

I have searched and can't seem to find the solution!!

Cannot print to a "Shared" Printer on Win 7 Ultimate 64 from a Vist 32bit machine.

I can see the printer, but then it says that the drive is incorrect.

It says that the *.inf file is not correct.

I cannot figure this out!

I also cannot install additional drivers on the Win 7 machine, because I get a, "the specified location does not contain the driver for the requested processor architecture" message.

What am I doing wrong here??!!
