How to pass DriverId to Printer Extension which is installed together with V4 driver.

    Question

  • Hello,

    I am developing PrinterExtension for v4 driver which we are going to include in V4 driver package.

    I would like to enable the same binary of PrinterExtension to work with multiple printer driver Ids.

    The comment in the new PrinterExtensionSample recommends to pass the driver id as a command line argument to enable one application binary to work with multiple printer driver ids. However specifying command-line argument is unsupported for the case of printer extension embedded into driver package.

    What is the recommended way to pass DriverId to Printer Extension in this case?

  • Hi Kondakovdmitry,

    This is a known limitation. We have a bug open and are investigating whether we can make a fix for Windows 8.

    Thanks!

  • Hello Justin!

    Thank you for the answer, I will wait for your solution, if you come up with any.

    Meanwhile, as a workaround I will make Printer Extension extract PrinterDriverID from the *-manifest.ini file, if it finds any beside it's own EXE file.

    Best regards,

    Dmitry.
