How to retrieve current Status of Printer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When we check System.Devices.Connected property of PnPObject for USB connected Printer,

    it always returned TRUE even if USB cable is disconnected.

    However, Status value changed to Offline in the Devices and Printers of the Control Panel.

    How can I get current Status value as like as the one from the Device and Printers?

    Thank you for your help in advance. 

    Actually, I heard that this issue is fixed in Build 8440 but it still happened with Build 9200.

    I checked below 3 different OS by myself and it looks like Korean OS has issue.

    - Windows 8 Enterprise (English) Build 9200  : Okay

    - Windows 8 K Build 9200 : Not Okay

    - Windows 8 Pro K Build 9200 : Not Okay
