    host is windows 7. guest is windows xp. i have an old printer a fargo dtc300, it doesnt have the win7 drivers and it never will the company never producted them. win7 see’s the printer attached via usb but can’t find a driver for it. i have the winxp driver for the guest but that thin print thing seems to be getting in the way. thinks theres a printer on serial one. i think i need to disable thin print. somehow connect the usb port that the printer is connect to directly to winxp then install the driver and it should see the printer connected to the usb port. cant quite get it. can someone help ?? surely someone has had to connect an old printer up to windows 7 without the drivers for win7, then connect it to a winxp guest where you do have the drivers.
