Try and search for Lexmark 2050 for lxinst32.exe for All Windows versions.

Is this printer listed on the W2K Hardware Compatibility List?

If so, there should be a "generic" driver built into Windows.
Instead of using the manufactures disk, manually select your printer from the list.

Generally speaking, I have found that if the manufacture does not offer a driver for a version of Windows, you are much better off replacing hardware than trying to make it work.
