    I have installed windows 7 on my imac with vmware because I am using an accounting program that is not compatible yet with a mac.
    The mac uses the printer on my network.
    Windows 7 has to use a separate usb printer.
    Although the printer is recognized , nothing is printig.
    Any solution?

    Can you print from OS X to the USB printer? You will need to confirm that it does before asking VMware to use it to print from Windows. In the VMware VM setup you enable printing to the OS X printers and select either the default or choose the one you want to print to. Then start your VM and test printing.
