Printer which was deleted from Windows Virtual Machine does not reappear after Windows restart
- Parallels Desktop 7 for Mac
The virtual machine's Printer, synchronized with Mac OS X printer by the new 'Virtual Printing' option does not appear after manual removal and virtual machine's restart.
This behavior happens on Windows Vista, Windows XP and earlier Windows versions.
Windows versions earlier than Windows 7 do not remove information about the printer from the registry, this prevents printer to be detected as a new one at virtual machine restart and to be synchronized automatically.
To reconnect deleted printer to the virtual machine, please open 'Printers and Faxes' window from the Start menu and add a new printer using 'Add a printer' wizard.
