Windows 7: XP Mode TS Ports switch to inactive

XP Mode TS Ports switch to inactive

Hello,
We have Windows 7 x64 and needed to run older QuickBooks software. I installed XP Mode and everything works great except when it comes to printing. I installed the HP LaserJet 1320 USB printer and used TSPort 001 and everything worked. The next time the user stated XP Mode the TS port 001 was inactive. I switched to an active port TS008 and printing worked again. The next time the user started XP Mode the TS port TS008 that was just active gets switched to inactive so I have to change it back to the original port TS 001 and then it works again.

This happens every time any user logs in and needs to print. Why do these TS Ports keep switching to inactive and how can i correct the issue?
Thanks!!!
