Windows 7: VM Folder on W7 Desktop help

25 Mar 2010   #1

Win7 Ultimate 64bit Build 7600
VM Folder on W7 Desktop help

Not too sure how to ask the question I want, so I will post the scenario I am looking to achieve.

I have installed a HP Color LaserJet 2840 MFP inside XP VM as there are no drivers or support for the scanner and fax features for this MFP under Windows7 x64.

While inside VM, I have created a folder on the desktop called “Scans”. All scanned in documents are directed to this folder.

I want to link (shortcut, etc) this “scans” folder on my Windows7 desktop, and other PCs on the network for that matter.

All attempts map, shortcut, or otherwise link any workstation to this folder have failed.

Attempts to "push" this folder out to the workstations have also failed.

Do you have any ideas?

HP color laserjet 2840 no scanner driver

I also have an HP Color LaserJet 2840 that will print but will not scan on my new computer with Windows 7 installed. When I went on to the site they are saying that there is not a driver available for Windows 7 for the scanner feature for my machine and that they are working on it and should keep checking back for a new driver availability, so in the meantime I am without the scanner feature on my printer which I need desperately. Any one have any updates on when that driver will be available?

I was able to get full functionality for this printer inside virtual XP, that is frickn awesome, Its just I want to be able to save the scanned documents to a non-virtual hard drive location. I also have been on HPs forum for this printers issue and Windows7. I recall someone did get it to work in 32 bit mode but not the 64. In any case, people on the HP form did not have much hope that HP was ever going to work on this issue since they are no longer making this printer, but I hope they will make drivers for this.
