Printer in XP Virtual Machine
I just tried to configure a printer on a XP virtual machine.
I installed the printer HP Laserjet 1000 with the right drivers, but now I don't know why it doesn't work.
Did I just install a virtual printer? Or might there be something wrong with the printer port? The printer is an USB printer.
Thanks in advance.

A Microsoft Tech suggests the following:
There are several methods you can use to make a printer available to a virtual machine. The methods you can use are affected by whether a printer driver is available for Windows 7 and whether the printer is a local USB printer or a network printer. You also can use the XPS format when your computer is configured to support this method of printing. This scenario describes all of these methods.
To share a local USB printer:
Note: This method is appropriate when the printer driver is available for both the Windows 7 host operating system and the guest operating system. You only need to complete these steps once per virtual machine. This procedure assumes you have verified that the printer is working in the host operating system.
To configure a network printer for a virtual machine:
To install a printer driver in Windows XP:
To print from a virtual machine:
1. Navigate to the virtual machine desktop, and log on if necessary. (You will be logged in automatically if you saved the credentials.)
2. Do one of the following:
· From the desktop of the virtual machine, right-click a file and click Print.
· Open any application that includes a print option, and then use the print command.
3. All printers available to the virtual machine are listed. Select a printer, and then click OK.
