    When you plug in a usb printer, windows automatically installs usb printing support and creates the usb virtual printer ports.

    My problem is this: I need to install a printer while loading systems without plugging the printer in.

    However, if no usb printer has ever been plugged in, (these are fresh installs), then the USB001 port will not exist and I can't set up the printer to use that port.

    Is there a way to install usb printing support without plugging in a usb printer and create the virtual printer ports??
