Printer installation error

On installing a printer driver I get this error and the installation fails.

Error Message: The image file %1 is valid, but is for a machine type other than the current machine.
Error group: Windows
Error code: 216

This same printer driver returns an error during NDPS installation

The server on which OKI 7300(PS) resides does not have the correct printer driver installed ...

but then the installation continues and the correct driver is installed and it works.

The only TID that refers to error 216 is in refernce to iManager.

I'm guessing I have to fix up the inf files to get Windows to believe that the driver is the right one but I'm not sure where to
start.

Any help is appreciated.

Best Regards,

George Melcher

Re: Printer installation error

If running NT, W2K or XP, then install the driver using the vendor
(Oki) supplied driver on a wkstn. running the same OS

Then try ether this:

or this:

Then upload to the broker using iManager

Re: Printer installation error

Good Day!

Your tool worked perfectly.

Add from system I had already tried with no success.

Add from file in iManager reports 'not currently supported'.

I used (whisper it) NW Admin to add the resource and installation now works without a hitch.

Thanks a bunch!
