Running windows xp in player on a windows 7 box. Both need to print to a single printer....which works fine. But when switching from vm to host or the other way it always messes with the default printer setting and just setting it back to the desired printer doesn't work unless the printer is powered off before hand. It is attached to a multifuction printer so it automatically installs all of the fax and scan drivers etc and will reset the default to one of those whenever I switch where I am printing from.
The Guest Player can't see any Host printer.
What is my next step?
No printers are displayed in Manage > Settings > Hardware > Printer
VMWare Player 6.0.1
