How do I add a network printer in XP mode?
I've recently installed Win7 Ultimate x64, dual-booting with XP-Pr0 x32, and have installed the XP mode VM in order to use my scanner and USB microscope, for which there are no X64 drivers.
I use an HP networked printer on the host system, but cannot access it from the XP mode guest; the list of available printers is empty.
When I try to add a printer to the guest, I choose "Networked printer" instead of "Locally attached", then select "Browse for a printer", but all I find is "Microsoft Windows Network", which results in "You need to specify a valid network printer name" when I press the "Next" button.
How can I use the networked print in the guest?

richnrockville suggested to add a printer by IP
It seems that I now have separate printers; one for the host and another for the guest, but I rather hoped the guest would use the host's printer. Since they both work it's not a real problem.
