    I have Windows 7 professional so I can run older programs in the XP emulation mode & it works. Is there a way to install the same printer in the XP emulation mode as well as the normal Windows 7 64 bit mode? I already have a printer installed in the 64 bit mode but can't access it in the emulation mode.

    have you tried installing the software within xp?
    I would opt for installing from the web rather than disk since it is a virtual machine and may be easier that way.
    Some things just dont work with a virtual machine that require drivers however.
    Post back any errors you recieve
