    Windows 10 Guest can't Print

    stattman Lurker

      Hi Forum,

       

      I've been reading the Guide and looking at forums but struggling to get an answer.

       

      My setup is:

       

      Host: macOS Sierra 10.12.5

      Guest: Windows 10

      Fusion: 8.5.8

       

      I have a wireless printer setup on the Mac and printing is no problem.

      I have Fusion configured to match the default printer.

       

      When I print from the Guest, I can see the print job going to the spooler but then nothing happens. If I copy the PDF back into the Host - it will print fine.

       

      I did connect the printer to the Mac and had it "Connect to Windows" - after installing some drivers it printed fine directly.

       

      So the issue just seems when I'm printing wirelessly. 

       

      If there's any thoughts or suggestions I could try that would be appreciated.

       

      Kind Regards

      Mark

          Hi stattman,

           

          Would you please double check the option 'Share Mac printers with Windows' in VM settings-->Printer is checked?

          If no, please check this option and restart the VM.

          If yes, make sure you have VM Tools installed properly. (Remove Tools and re-install it)

           

          I hope it helps.

           

          Regards,
