Re: Brother HL-2140 monochrome laser printer
Installed on Windows 7 64-bit and fully functional
To be shared over home network with Vista 32-bit
Vista 32-bit 'finds' the HL-2140 on 7 over the home network but does not load the available 32-bit driver
Has anyone made this combination work? Brother's tech support says they do not support networking on this model, so no help there …
In Windows 7, in Printer Properties under the Sharing tab, there is an "Additional Drivers" button that ostensibly allows 32-bit drivers to be added for the particular printer for just this situation.
The downloaded 32-bit HL-2140 drivers for Vista are not accepted; nor are they accepted after being located in Vista's Add networked printer routine. Specifically, at both the Windows 7 64-bit end and the Vista 32-bit end the file "BROHL07A.INF" is rejected as not matching the operating system.
Any suggestions would be most welcome!
