Troubleshooting Virtual PC 6.x: Yet another emulated printing workaround; Mac OS X 10.3.2 may help

Troubleshooting Virtual PC 6.x: Yet another emulated printing workaround; Mac OS X 10.3.2 may help

Bob Stern has submitted yet another workaround for using emulated printing in Virtual PC 6.x under Mac OS X 10.3.x "Install the Adobe postscript printer driver for Windows and the Adobe PPD, which Adobe provides for free.

"The Adobe driver allows you to print to a .ps file in Windows. If you save the .ps file in a VPC shared folder, you can print it from the Mac side by dragging it to a printer queue or by opening it in Preview and then printing it. (Preview also can export it to PDF.)"

We previously published a number of other workarounds, as well as Microsoft's official statement on the issue.

Also, you may have more success with emulated printing in Virtual PC after upgrading to Mac OS X 10.3.2, as Apple makes the following statement in its release notes: "Improves compatibility for Microsoft Virtual PC 6.1's emulated printing features."
