I have a old printer that is xp compatible, I just bought a new computer with windows 7 professional and I'm wondering if I can use the old printer in either compatibility mode, or in the xp virtual PC mode?

Hi :) 

It will work in xp mode , you will have to install it in xp mode though....

7 needs the manufacturers drivers...

All the best Brett :)

It would have been very helpful to mention the printer model! Microsoft has a bunch of generic drivers even for very old printers. If you can't find in in the list at installation, hit 'update'. If there is still no driver for your model you can try the XP driver.
