The PushPrinterConnections.exe utility reads the printer connection settings from Group Policy and then adds the appropriate printer connections to the client computer. However, this utility has only a 64-bit version that is built into Windows Server 2008 x64 Edition. When you try to use this utility and Group Policy to deploy printer connections to a client computer that is running an x86 version of a Windows operating system, the following event log is logged on the client computer:

Event Type: Error Event Source: UserInit Event Category: None Event ID: 1000 Date: <Date> Time: <Time> User: N/A Computer: <Computer Name> Description: Could not execute the following script PushPrinterConnections.exe. For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp

This update provides a 32-bit printer driver and the PushPrinterConnections.exe utility for Windows Server 2008.
