USB MFP print server that works with Windows x64?

Right now, we are using the Longshine LCS-MFP101-2 to connect to our MFP device (printer/scanner combo) over LAN. However, the required driver (RMVUSB, Remote Virtual USB) cannot be installed on 64 bit Windows operating systems such as Windows XP x64 or Windows 7 x64. Since the distributor lists the product as "phased out", I do not expect any updated 64 bit drivers any time soon. :/

As @harrymc mentioned, any new printer will work with both x86 and x64 Windows. What I can add is that external USB printservers are unreliable at best (printer manufacturers also don't help the situation). So it's best to pay $30-$40 more and have printer with integrated printserver supported by the manufacturer.
