Ticket #11387 (closed defect: obsolete)
Unable to print anything through the parallel port on XP guest/WS 2008 host
|Reported by:||Stanisław||Owned by:|
- VirtualBox 4.2.6r82870 with Guest Addons 4.2.6r82870 installed.
- Guest OS: Windows XP Pro SP3, 32-bit, 512 MB RAM, version 5.1.2600.
- Host OS: Windows Server 2008 SP2 32-Bit, 3.2 GB RAM, version 6.0.6002.
I have a HP 850C printer atttached to the parallel port. The LPT1 port is available on the host, currently there are no divers on the host installed that may be keeping it busy. I am unable to print anything from the guest, I just get immediately a popup telling me that the print has failed. This occurs in every application, I am unable to print even the test page. The printer does not react at all.
VM logs and settings attached. The ticked is being filed as a result of this thread on the community forum: https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=53560
