Printer driver RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried for a month to find source code that will determine if a printer is online and available for printing.

    Ring 3 Windows Printer API's can not determine that information.

    It looks like a printer driver is the only way to determine that.

    Does someone have some source code to get me started ?

    I have the WDK installed and currently program in Win32 assembly.

    From what I have read, I may have to query the virtual U.S.B. port that is used in printing.
