I have been able to download drivers (PCL6) for the latest Sharp MX-3110N MFP, and create printer driver profiles for WinXP, Win Vista, and Win7 64bit but not Win7 32bit.

The creation process appears to create the hidden printer agent on the PC, but fails to give any screens to enable the actual configuration of the driver. I just have to crash IE other it sits showing a looping iprint progress box.

I have tried this on 2 separate Windows7 32bit machines, and we are running Netware6.5sp8 with iPrint fully patched.

Might the following from ipperrs.txt be a clue?

The drivers I used are those that are also on the Sharp USA web site:
