how do you add a usb printer to a windows ce pro 5.0 thin client?

Last Modified: 2013-11-11
I'm trying to add a Brother HL-2040 printer to a thin client running windows CE Pro 5.0.
The manufacturer is Computer Labs international Model MT1200C25K

When I connect the printer via USB, then go into Setup Environment/Devices/Printers the only port I have to select from is Network. The manual says there should be USB, LPT and network. How do I get the USB port option to show?
