how to create a virtual printer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

     

    I would like to know how to create a virtual printer.  I want to create a new virtual printer that in displayed as a printer in all other applications and be used like an actual printer.  Can anybody lead me in the right direction???

     

    Thanks!!!

  • That sounds like you want to create some form of windows device driver (of sorts) if your going to be using in all other applications.

    I would say you would be better looking for an existing driver rather than creating your own - I've seen stuff like this before with Office and Postscript drivers but from what I've read venturing into writing drivers in not something that is easy and to be takern lightly.

  • Do you know where I could get a driver for what I need to do?
