HP2600n for sale

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?Tmljaw==?=, Feb 2, 2006.

  1. .... just kidding. But thought I would share this workaround:

    - Install VMplayer on X64 machine (free download) or the full version if you
    have it.
    - Create XP X86 VM with Host only networking on a machine with VMWare
    installed. Configure virtual machine with minimum specs (eg 64mb ram or
    whatever)
    - Install printer (dont share as it wont work etc etc)
    - Install software you would print from (ie Word processor etc)
    - Share HDD of host machine to VM (with appropriate security of course) and
    create shortcut on desktop of VM to the Host's HDD.
    - Create VM image
    - Copy VM image to X64 machine and create shortcut on desktop. Optionally
    place shortcut in Startup with run minimise as a shortcut setting.

    When you need to print, go to VM window (machine), open shortcut to host
    HDD, navigate to file, print.
