I have a macbook pro with Snow leopard newly installed. I'm running VMfusion 2.0.5 with a Vista 64Bit Virtual machine. When I click the "enable printers" in the VM settings, the check box will not stay checked. I click it and it disappears in about 5 seconds.
I've tried chaning the network connection to a bridge type (as per the article from the knowledged base) and I lost my internet connection in the VM. I changed the connection back to "NAT"
I've installed bonjour and I can see the printers (printers shared on the Apple side), but when it tries to install the printer, it says that I don't have sufficent access rights (Logged in to VM as the administrator)
What do I need to do to be able to print from the Windows virtual machines?
Thanks for the reply. Tried to run the steps in the referenced KB article. However, I do not show "Windows Prefernces" in the sharing tab. Closest thing I have is through options that says "share files usine SMB(Windows).
Before I recieved your msg, I reinstalled VM 2.0.5 and now I can check the "Enalbe Printers" and it stays checked. However, none of my network printers that are shown on the Mac side are showing up in the VM, and even wtih printer sharing enabled, I can' get them to show in the VM so I can add them. Any other suggestions?
