Why can't I download the driver for my HP 6940 deskjet in virtual XP mode 32 bit in the Windows 7 64 bit OS? Is it to do with the screen resolution? The setting is not changeable that I can see. Why can not I just download it in Windows 7 and have it share with the virtual XP mode? Any ideas or help?

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 the host PC handles the actual hardware with it's own physical hardware and drivers.
