Windows 7: XPMode and Dos printing

Windows 7 PRO 64 bit
XPMode and Dos printing

re Intergration features I cannot see and HP LaserJet 2200 PCL printer I have attached to LPT1 on my Host (running Win7 Pro 64 bit with XPMode correctly installed) yet Printers are ticked in the Intergration window.

I can successfully install and use the printer in XPMode - but having trouble mapping it to LPT1 for an old DOS based program in XPMode. Have tried a series of NET USE LPT1 commands including NET USE LPT1 \\tsclient\"printer name" - but get a series of error responses from 66 to 87 and invalid parameters - not sure quite what I am getting wrong here. Any help would be appreciated.

XPmode or Virtualbox
Just a few questions regarding XPmode am I right in thinking that it's just a modified windows virtual machine with an xp licence?
