How to create a virtual USB001 port if none appear under printer ports list

If, when you're trying to install a printer via USB cable, for some reason the “USB001 Virtual printer” port under the list of available printer ports isn’t available or not appearing as it should under "Add Printer",“Use an 

existing port” or “Printer -> “Create a new port”. If you experience this, you can manually install the USB001 virtual printer port by re-installing usbprint.inf.

Side note: with Windows 10, you must have the printer physically attached to the computer or the laptop for the “USB001 virtual port” to appear.

Installing usbprinter.inf
  • C:\windows\INF\usbprint.inf
  • Right click
  • select -> install

I hope this help solve your printer problem.
