Win 7 64 + Virtual XP Mode = No printing from XP Mode
Brand New PC with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit w/SP1 and latest win 7 updates + Virtual XP mode w/SP3 and updates.
1 HP Laserjet 1020 connected via USB directly to the PC... hp 64 bit software installed and printing perfectly from Win 7 Environment.
1 HP Laserjet M2727nf on the network... hp 64 software installed and printing perfectly from Win 7 Environment.
Both computers Environment Workgroup Names have the same Network Name... that has been checked twice
I start XP Mode, if I go to the Printers & Faxes section, all I see is:
I have googled this to death but none of the links I find deal with my situation, pretty much all of them can print but have other issues and that is not the case with me... I Can Not print from withing XP Mode.
I have not tried this yet but I was wondering if I should Uninstall both printers from Win 7 64 and install back again but with 32 bit software instead of the 64? Would that make any difference?
I am not a computer Genius but I know my way around them, Networking though, that is an entirely new monster and him and I just don't get along
Computer Specs on this new Machine:
PSU OCZ 600W
Intel i5 2500K 3.3 Ghz
16GBs Corsair Vengeance PC1600 (2 x 8 GBs) Ram
Asus 25: LCD VE258Q
If you require more info let me know but I think I have posted enough for now
