i have an apple with the vmware fusion, and i trying to learn how to get the most out of it, i have macosx on one side and windows xp on the other side, i was able to get my printer on the mac side but not able to get it on the window side....my question is, since i already have it on the mac side, while can't it convert over to the window side.?
The easiest way to do this would be to install Bonjour for Windows inside your virtual machine:
Then, enable Printer Sharing on your Mac in System Preferences -> Sharing.
As a last step, you may need to change your virtual machine network type from NAT to Bridged. (Look in the Virtual Machine -> Network menu.)
