Is it possible to add a Logmein printer to a Windows virtual machine running on the remote PC?

When remote into my office PC from home, I routinely print to my home printer by selecting it in the printer dialog box. It has "Logmein" appended to the usual printer name.  

 

Now I have a VMware Windows 8 Pro virtual machine running on my office PC.  When I am remoted into my office PC via Logmein, and run the W8P VM, is it possible to print from that VM to my home printer? In Devices and Printers on the W8P VM, I can see my office printers, but not the logmein printer that exists during the remote session.

Hi @twdal, welcome to the community.

 

I believe you will need to configure the VMware to print to the computer it is running on, in order for it to then pass to the LogMeIn printer. This VMware article might get you started:   Enabling a Virtual Machine to Print to Host Printers
