If you have installed a printer device before, click Start, Settings, Printers. Right-click the default installed printer and click on Properties. The Properties dialog box of the installed printer will appear on your screen.

Click the Ports tab and change the printer port to USB001 (Virtual printer port to USB).

If you do not have a printer installed yet, click on Start, Settings, Printers, Add Printer. The Add Printer Wizard will start and assist you in installing a new printer device. Select the printer manufacturer and model name from the list provided by the wizard or use the printer driver diskette supplied by your printer.

When prompted which port the printer will use, click on USB001 (Virtual printer port to USB).

 

Of course this will do you no good if no printers are installed or recognized.

When you try to install your printer at what point are you connecting the USB cable?
