I am trying to install my HP 6940 deskjet onto my virtual XP mode 32 bit in my Windows 7 64 bit. It is not working and I am wondering if it has something to do with the resolution of the screen? Do you have any ideas?

Hello Rober;
I'm pretty sure you can't add XP drivers to the XP virtual PC.
A virtual machine abstracts the the virtual PCs hardware and host PC handles the actual hardware with it's own physical hardware and drivers.

WR2 is correct XP mode is for software, it doesn't allow you to use XP drivers for W7 incompatible hardware.
