On Windows hosts, you can configure Workstation Player to support virtual printing on all printers configured on the host.

Virtual printing is disabled by default on Windows hosts. To enable or disable virtual printing on a Windows host system, select Player > File > Preferences > Devices. Select the Enable virtual printers checkbox to enable virtual printers. VMware Tools must be installed on the virtual machine to enable printing. You must have administrator privileges to enable or disable virtual printers.

The Workstation Player printer feature uses ThinPrint technology to replicate the host system printer mapping in the virtual machine. When you enable the virtual machine printer, Workstation Player configures a virtual serial port to communicate with the host printers.
