Printing from Windows under Parallels

I wanted to print something from Windows running under Parallels. One suggestion was to install Bonjour for Windows, and then share the Mac printer (in this case my CUPS virtual PDF printer). The disadvantages to this were that a) I didn’t want my machine sharing things on the network as it attracts the attention of the network admins, and b) it didn’t work 🙂

Instead I downloaded the open source PDF Creator and installed it under Windows. It creates PDFs which I can drag to the Mac and store in case I ever get the urge to kill trees with a real printout.
