Virtual PC for Windows does not support USB devices (other than a mouse and keyboard ... which are not actually emulated via USB, but are simply "used" through the host) ... but just to confirm the "official" statement of this:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/824511/en-us

Unfortunately, Microsoft did NOT add USB support in Virtual PC 2007 (a widely anticipated addition that simply didn't happen).

VMWare Server DOES support USB devices (through the host) with some exceptions. From the documentation: "... Modems and certain streaming data devices, such as speakers and Web cams, do not work properly." You may want to read the details of using USB devices with a VMWare virtual machine starting on page 232 here: http://www.vmware.com/pdf/server_vm_manual.pdf

You can download Virtual Server for free here (You'll need to register and request a free key ... a painless process): http://www.vmware.com/download/server/

How to connect to computer


The unit has a parallel port interface and is supported under Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP . The drivers are available here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/office/laser_facsimile/laser_class_2050_2050p_2060_2060p/laser_class_2060p?selectedName=Specifications#DriversAndSoftware . For the supported OS versions, download the drivers and then run the exe. If it extracts drivers, note the folder in which they are stored. Then launch the Add a Printer Wizard (Printers and Faxes in XP IIRC). If your computer doesn't have a parallel port, parallel to USB adapters do exist.

Neither Vista or Win7 Compatibility Center have the unit listed. The XP driver may work in Vista 32-bit with the compatibility mode on. For Win7 or Vista 64-bit, I'd suggest a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS. For the most setups, you'll need a licensed version of the Windows OS. (Virtual computer software include: Parallels, VMWare and Virtual PC.)

With Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft for free, then install them in order. The printer will install normally into the XP virtual computer. However, files from the main computer will need to go onto optical media or an external drive in order to share them with the virtual computer for printing.

I hope this helps.

I'm having issues getting the lexmark z25 drivers for windows 7


There is no driver for windows 7, in fact, they don't even have a vista driver for this printer.

If you absolutely must use this printer under windows 7, you could use VirtualBox (virtualbox.org), to create a virtual computer, install XP in the virtual computer, then redirect the usb or lpt port to the virtual computer. Then you'd have to save the document to a shared folder, open the document in the virtual XP, and print. Even sharing the printer over the virtual network (or off a real xp machine and real network) won't work, since win7 doesn't know how to 'speak' Z25 'language'.

Frankly, it's a LOT easier, and really, when you consider your time, cheaper to buy a new printer that has a windows 7 driver.

Epson TM-T90 wont work with USB plug


I have the same problem...Epson does not work with a parallel to usb cable or adapter. If you still want to use this printer you will have to use the parallel port or change the interface on the printer to USB.

There is a work around to getting Windows XP programs to work under Windows Vista - Virtual PC 2007.

Virtual PC 2007 is a free download from Microsoft and it allows you to install any operating system and run it in a "window" on your Vista desktop.

Download Virtual PC 2007, create a Windows XP virtual machine, install Microsoft Money and transfer in your data. You can install Quicken as well.

The virtual machine will use your PC's actual connections (network, serial and printer but not USB) to connect to devices and the Internet.

Again - this is a work around that is proven to work. One side benefit - you can copy the virtual machine to an external hard drive / USB memory stick and run it on any comptuer that has Virtual PC 2007 installed on it.

Hope this helps

I have a problem to install window 98 .


Another solution is to download and install Microsoft Virtual PC in XP, create a Virtual PC drive, and install Windows 98 onto the Virtual PC drive. This works fine if you want to run Win 9X programs which don't require access to USB ports on your computer. If you need Windows 98 to have full access to all of the computer hardware, then use palaboy's solution.
