Hi! Here is my problem!


I have a number of workstations running on Windows 7 64-bit OS. In the department I have one RW-480 architectural plotter which is connected to a WIndows XP 32-bit computer which serves as the controller for the printer.


I need to connect my 64-bit machines on the plotter but.... no 64-bit drivers are available for the RW-480 architectural plotter and therefore cannot communicate between my devices! 


The only solution I tried was the Google Cloud Printer solution still I am looking to a more solid solution if available for my LAN.


Any ideas????

Maybe I don't understand the problem. W7x64 can run 32bit programs.

I'd look at upgrading the plotter server to W7 very soon to protect the network. Maybe to W7x32 if it makes things work better.
