Re: DRIVER NEEDED: Hewlett Packard (HP) HP Laserjet 1000 Series (Windows XP Professional x64) [USB]
I was not able to find the driver file too but I found the driver in the driver selection dialog of windows. It appears if you use the Windows Update button in the driver selection dialog.
Short description of my solution:
Shared the printer as expained by VTSteve.
Made a small script, that connects the shared printer to lpt1:
echo Make sure that the virtual machine with the printer share is already running and the usb-printer is assigned to this machine!
net use lpt1 /del
NET USE lpt1 \\VirtualXP-56538\hpLaserJ1000DOS /Persistent:No
Execute the script, then add a new local printer, that uses lpt1 and the hp laserjet 1100 driver. As already stated, you need to press windows update once to see the correct driver. (At least this was the case for me)
Printing works after these changes.
The big downside of this solution is, that you have to start the virtual machine first, connect the printer to the virtual machine and reconnect lpt1.
I hope someone can provide a better solution.
