When the "print server" computer is 32 bit and the "client" is 64 bit, you
have to get the 64 bit version of the driver installed on the client.
There are a few ways to do this:
1. install it as an "Additional driver" on the "print server" - see http://members.shaw.ca/bsanders/AddDrivertoOldOS.htm
(instructions are for
XP, but the Vista process is essentially the same); then connect to the
2. if the 64 bit printer driver is "in-box" (delivered with Vista), when you
connect to the network printer, the 64 bit driver "should" be installed on
the client automatically
3. use the workaround described at http://members.shaw.ca/bsanders/NetPrinterNoPP.htm
If you still have problems, please reply with the printer make and model
("3030", but which manufacturer and model type).

It is perfectly useless to know the right answer to the wrong question.
