Back in June, 2016, I asked if anyone had experience supporting scanners on a mix of 32- and 64-bit platforms. No replies. We have just that - a mix of different bit depths on our client PCs within our organization. Our system software, written in-house, runs as 32-bit across all PCs. I could replace all the PCs that have scanners (and scales) with 64-bit Windows PCs, but I still have to build the system as 32-bit. So why is this a problem? It's a problem because I can't load the 32-bit Symbol drivers on a 64-bit pc. The installer barks that the wrong version is being installed. Now... I noticed that there have been some improvements to the SDK and such, but it looks, still, as though the SDK is bitness-aware.
So... can anyone out there shed some light on my problem? As I stated back in June, this can't be a one-off issue. Or are we just really behind the times with our mix of client PCs? No response required for that last question.
