Use xp-only printer in Windows 7 through XP Mode
My operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate (build 7600).
After powering on my printer, which is connected by USB, Windows 7 identifies printer properly (Other Devices -> Canon LBP-810 in Device Manager). Official site provides drivers only for 32-bit Windows XP and Vista, so there are no suitable drivers for my system.
To be able to use my printer, I've installed XP Mode, and in virtual Windows XP installed XP-32bit drivers for my printer.
Now I want to share installed printer in virtual XP (guest), and connect to it from Windows 7 (host), to be able to print from every application in host system. How that can be done?
Thanks forehand for any replies.
