    Please answer these two questions, with one word YES or NO:
    1. Have you installed the HP LaserJet P1006 drivers on your Sony laptop?
    2. Have you installed the HP LaserJet P1006 drivers on your Windows XP Hyper-V virtual machine?


    Notice that it is not enough that you have the drivers installed on the computer which has the printer connected to it. Example from my network: I have among other machines an HP Envy laptop running Windows 10 with a PhotoSmart C309 printer connected to it with a USB cable, all PhotoSmart C309 drivers installed. That laptop has several Hyper-V virtual machines, among them Windows XP vm and a CentOS Linux vm. I have another HP ProBook laptop running Windows 8.1.

    In order to be able to print from the Windows 8.1 laptop, CentOS virtual machine and Windows XP virtual machine using the printer connected to the Windows 10 laptop, I need to install printer drivers for HP PhotoSmart C309 on all of them. I download and install the drivers on CentOS vm, on Windows XP vm, and on Windows 8.1 laptop.

    Only after I have installed the drivers on all of them can I connect and print to the printer on the Windows 10 laptop. When you connect one computer (physical PC or a vm) to a printer on another computer, both computers must have the proper drivers installed.

    Yes. I downloaded from HP the drivers for XP and Win10 and ran the 32 bit driver installation on Sony-XP and VirtualXpPro, Also ran the 64 bit HP driver on the host (Win10). Then I went into each printer after installation and ran the printer driver update selection for XP and Win10. Don't know which driver is shown. I assume it picks the newest driver.
    Just deleted the printer on Sony and reinstalled, or at least tried to for the printer. If I selected "network printer" it would not find it. Then I selected "local printer" and it still could not find it. Had to give it \\asusdrb direction and it asked for a password to the host. I don't require one to start computer but did have one ealier. So I gave that one and it came up with "credentials not sufficent to access the printer. Do you want to specify new credentials?" Seems like yesterday I was able to install without this requirement. I really think I should be able to see the printer when viewing in either XP machine/Virtual?

    If a printer asks for password to an account without a password, you should leave the password empty.

    That is one of the things I tried and it comes up with "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Operation could not be completed."

    I installed Hp latest driver and connected directly to Sony-xp. That connection works and prints. Next I installed a local printer using \\asusdrb Local Port (is this correct?) from my Win10 host, but that did not print. I see both printers on Sony-Xp. Any other suggestions?

    And you have the sharing settings in host computer (that one with the printer connected to) correctly set:

    Have what you show above. Did find out 15 minutes ago that my host printer was turned off sharing so I changed it to "sharing". Don't know how it got turned off. Now do I need to reinstall the Xp printers after turning it back on?

    Just noticed that there are 2 unknow devices in Device Manager. That happened before also. Plus I have no printers shown in the list

    You should not need to reinstall the drivers. Test, do it if necessary.

    I am concerned that I do not see any printers in Device Manager for either XP's but do see them in host. I did install correctly a printer when hooked up to Sony-xp. Is this correct with windows xp vs 10?

    No, it's not correct. I really do not know why you can't get it to work. Does the other way around, connecting the printer to the XP laptop and printing from Windows 10 to that work?

    Printing from host works. If I connect the usb printer to Sony-Xp directly and install this printer, it works.

    Ops, I did not understand until now so I tried to install the Sony=xp printer but it could not see it. It saw every other print that is for faxes, quicken, etc. Weird.

    Oops again. I just remembered that I need to share the Sony printer before it can be seen. Did that and installed network printer on host and behold it printed a page. So it works one way but not the other.
