Windows XP Mode - Printers

Hello Experts,

I would like to know how to have my Windows XP Mode have access to all the installed printers on Windows 7. I guess I could share my Windows 7 printers but is there any other way to just have it available without going through installing it from scratch? I am most interested in having my Adobe Acrobat 9 PDF writer available within Windows XP Mode.

Sorry, it is not that straightforward and easy for printer sharing. You need to manually installed the printers.

If the printers are shared over the same workgroup, you can share the printers and add them just like adding a network printer.

If your computer is part of the domain network, you need to domain admin rights to add the printer.

Thanks for the advice. I understand about manually installing the printers. How about getting Adobe Acrobat PDF Writer? Is there a way to get that installed on Windows XP Mode without buying another license?
