1. How to install a Network Printer on Windows XP Mode™ within Microsoft Windows 7 Professional®

  1. Start up Windows XP Mode then click "Printers and Faxes" in control panel.
  2. Click "Add a Printer" to start the printer-installation wizard.
  3. Select "Local Printer attached to this computer" (and clear the checkbox next to "Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play Printer").
  4. Select one of the TS number ports. (This brings up a list of ports labeled "TS0001" and higher).

One of these numbered ports leads to your Windows 7 printer—(but you have no way of knowing which one). The only thing to do is choose one of the TS ports, continue with the wizard, install the drivers for your printer when prompted, and then, when you reach the last page of the wizard, click the button that prints a test page. If the test page prints, you've chosen the right TS number. If the test page doesn't print, you chose the wrong number, and you need to go back and repeat the process until you find the one that works.

If these steps do not correct the problem, please contact Dell Technical Support.
