    Ok so I have a Macbook and an HP C3180 Printer. I am using an airport express to wirelessly print on Mac OS X, but since I have to have windows office for school (and they require windows), I bought Parallels so that I wouldn't have to partition my hard drive.

    But now I can't figure out how to use Airport Express to wirelessly print when I am in parallels. I have installed the hp driver, but even wired printing isn't working as windows won't detect the printer for me to add it under control panel.

    Does anyone know what part I should designate when manually entering a printer? They give you ports like LPT1, COM1... but I can't find a USB port & don't know which code means the USB. Also does anyone have experience with Windows as Airport express as to setting up the wireless printing?

    Maybe try installing Bonjour for Windows on Parallel. I'm not sure if it'll work, but its worth a try. :)
