Windows 10: Hyper-V virtualization - Setup and Use in Windows 10
But can you print to the printer from your current host if the printer is connected to Sony-XP?
Yes, that is what I did.
It means 10 can connect to XP but the same XP can't connect to the same 10. Logical conclusion: you have something wrong in your 10 network and sharing settings and / or firewall.
Can I open something from each computer and compare?
Since I can see files either way, it has to do with printing, right?
I have not given up. I need to figure this one out since I have 2 other computers which will be running Win10 that I need to install Hyper-v. So what should I do next?
Have not heard from you all week. Vacation?
Incidentally this problem existed when I had win8.1 and carried over after upgrading to win10.
While waiting for a reply I went back to 4.6 and removed my virtual switch, continued with 5.1, the 4.9 onward. Reinstalled a local printer in virtual and still unable to print. Don't know what else to do except delete my virtual setup entirely and start over. Wondering if this would eliminated my xp setup to where I would have to install xp again, which would be a problem since I don't have my xp program disk anymore. Where would I get the program again? (I still have the key.}
Or do I need to do something else to discover the problem?
I am sorry but to be totally honest I took that quite badly, it's as if you are accusing me of something. For your information my last response to you in this thread is from 2 days ago:

Since that you have not told anything new, anything that would change the situation, anything that would help me to find something else to suggest.
All of us here at the Ten Forums are doing this voluntarily, in addition to our real life. It's a hobby, not a profession. On these forums in general and my own tutorial threads in particular, I am as active as my real life and other stuff allows.
That being said, I have nothing else to suggest. I have no issues in getting a Windows XP Hyper-V virtual machine to work correctly in my network, including printing to host printer.
Sorry you feel that way. I don't see where I accused you of anything or meant to do it. Sorry.
Realize that I have been trying to resolve this problem for many days, feeling very frustrated, and is very time consuming to me as well as you. Frustration brings out a tone that is not normal for me. Sorry again and I really do appreciate all the time you also spent trying to resolve my difficult problem.
First of all thank you for the brilliant post.
I tried to follow all your instructions but got stuck at the very beginning. When I Turned on the Hyper-V feature it did not ask me to reboot. However I did. After the reboot when I started the Hyper-V Manager, it did not show my comp name in the left-hand pane. I said 'Connect to Server' and selected 'Local Computer' and got the following error:
An error occurred while attempting to connect to server "MyCompName". Check that the Virtual Machine Management service is running and that you are authorized to connect to the server.
The operation on computer 'MyCompName' failed: Invalid class
I verified in the Services and there were no such a service - Virtual Machine Management.
I've been using Windows 7 Home Edition 64bit since it's release &, by in large, I'm pretty pleased with it. During a motherboard change & RAM upgrade to 32G, I upgraded to Windows 7 Pro (to enable all RAM to be used) which I choose in preference to...

No go VMware said the same thing boo-hoo anyone have instruction to enable in bios ?
Spec's are added,
I'm getting there, I've downloaded the .ISO file, I've made 2 images of my C:\ drive (using 2 different backup programs) and I've created a 100 GB partition on my second hard drive labeled Windows 10.
Now I'm going to create the install...
I tried to install the preview as a virtual machine and everything went fine until after a reboot following the download and installation of the updates. Both 8.1 & 10 locked up with a strange crackling noise through the speakers every few seconds....
