Epsom driver for W7?

  Roadgiant 11:11 01 Nov 2009

I'm due to receive a copy of W7 in the next few days and I am currently downloading drivers etc prior to moving over from Vista, on the Epson site for my printer a R220, it lists 2 drivers :- one for Windows 7 X64 and one for Windows 7 X86. Presumably the X86 version is the one required for 32bit, I'd appreciate if someone can confirm this? Why call it X86 if this is the case?
Thanks RG

Windows 7 X86.is the driver for your printer if you intend to install Windows 7 32.bit

My old Epson 830u printer & Epson V200 scanner in stalled & run fine with the original XP drivers.

that goes back to the days when the CPU was named '286, or 386, 486 or 486 DX 33' to specify a co-processor on board and the speed of the cpu.

Just to say that everything worked fine with the Windows 7 X86,can't understand why they make it more complicated if the drivers had just been
Windows 7 X64 and one for Windows 7 X32 it would have made it a lot more obvious.
Thanks again RG
