Windows 7 XP Mode Printer Issue

By technogeek-1995 ·
I have a Brother HL-L2360DW printer that is not being discovered by my XP mode virtual machine on Windows 7. I have disabled and re-enabled the integration features. I tried to install the printer on the XP mode side with no luck. I'm not sure if this is a driver issue or what at this point. I had an HP printer that was working fine with integration features on the same system in the past (printer broke). My hypothesis now is that the issue arises from a driver compatibility issue. The printer driver is likely only 64 bit and unable to run on windows XP? Any tips would be appreciated.

Found the answer on another form: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/i-cannot-get-xp-mode-to-share-a-printer/06090351-a3b0-4feb-a250-43eac49b7534

The solution to the problem was to install the 32 bit version of the printer's driver on the XP Mode machine.
