II'm trying to migrate printers from one 2k3 server to another using ms print migration tool 3.1 I created the backup on the server I'm moving the printers to. However when I run the restore it errors out at this point: Enumerating printer drivers for environment Windows AMD64. Restore-compromised. I thought I had read about a registry edit adressing that problem, but I can't seem to find the reference. Any help would be appreciated. tia Rudy

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you migrating from a 32-bit OS to a 64-bit OS? If this is the case, you will need to get new drivers. Most 32-bit print drivers will not work on a 64-bit OS.

    No, it's 32bit2k3 to 32bit.
