Hi mlpk007 and welcome to Tom's forum.

Can u see the printer? Do u get some error? Do u have the correct driver for both Win XP and Win 7?

Install inf manually. You will want to use the inf from the windows xp driver package.

install the 32bit xp driver and install it on the hosting system.
Then connect to it with the xp machine
once this has been established then you can change the driver on the hosting system back to the correct driver.
