    My host PC is networked and running Windows XP Professional. I have
    installed Windows Server 2003 with Office 2007 on my guest PC. I have been
    trying to find out how I can print to a networked printer from my Virtual PC
    but have been unsuccessful. All the articles that I found do not work for me.

    Can someone assist me?

    Thanks.

    Well, the obvious way is to have the host share the printer on the network. Did
    you try that?

    But one problem you may have is that many consumer level printers do not have
    drivers that work with Server OS's (or 64-bit OS's).

  3. Oops, I misread your post. I thought the printer was attached to the host.
