    VMWARE WKS - 12.1 Enable printing ?? Solved

    Hi there

    VMWARE WKS 12.1 seems to have an error on both LINUX and WINDOWS Hosts.
    If you try and attach a printer to the VM you get "Printing must be globally enabled" message in the VMware VM configuration.

    There's nowhere to set this !!!!!.

    Any way of adding it manually to the actual vmx (config) file itself --often there's options you can set in that which don't appear in the vm gui editor.

    Edit : Fixed -- you need to choose edit--->preferences in the VM menu -- Documentation not clear !!!! for PLAYER it's in File. ???

    Another issue - can't get Bridged networking to work on Anniversary build (W10 build 1607).
