I´ve read that Workstation 7 supports now virtual printing. But where do i enable virtual printing. I cannot find any settings in the Virtual Machine settings nor do i find any information how to configure virtual printing.
Do i need additional software?
Believe it or not. I searched the documentation.
But i searched for "virtual printing" as this was the term Vmware used in their New Features announcement.
it took me some time to understand what to do.
Here are the steps:
1. in VirtualMachineSettings->Hardware->Add...->Virtual Printer
2. in VirtualMachineSettings->Options->Double Click ACE and Enable ACE features
3. start the VirtualMachine and reinstall the VmWareTools
-- i chose "change" not "repair"
-- in the next Dialog under VmWare "DeviceDriver" (as i have a german Windows - VmwareTools runs in german. So i am not sure, if "Device Driver" is the correct translation) select "ThinPrint" to be installed.
After a restart of the VmWare Machine, all my printers are available in the Vmware Machine.
Hope this helps.
I've done some testing on my side too. And also a blog post concerning the issue you're talking about. I did not have to enable ACE at all...
