Virtual XP mode-can't print


  • I have a Win 7 cpu with 64 bit, Professional edition.

    I have installed Virtual XPMode and it is working.  I just can't print in virtal mode

    The printer is set up & working file.  In virtual it  says it is printing.  Then I get another message, " remote destop re-directed printer doc"

    Where is the document going?  Why isn't it printing?

  • Have you attached the printer to the XP Mode?

  • Yes, I have attached the printer in Virtual XP Mode.  That is where I get the message:

    printing,  and then "remote desktop re-directed printer doc".

    I can say the document to a flash drive, close XP mode, go to Win 7, paste into Word and print just fine.

    Just can't print the document in Wordpad in Virtual XP mode.

  • Hi,


    Please install the printer driver in XP mode.


    Furthermore, you can refer this like to print from XP mode:
