VISUAL COBOL IN HYPER-V VM

We are developing our migration from NET EXPRESS to VISUAL COBOL under Visual Studio 2013 using VMs developed with Hyper-V. We are having difficulties communicating with the network printers that are defined to our Win 7 machines. Do you have any suggestions how we can communicate across the VM into the actual network attachments or do we need to redefine the printers within the VMs?

Thus far our transition of the Dialog System screens into this environment are working well. Our intention is to go to Web Forms instead of the Dialog screens in the course of this migration.

Thank you!
