[MBS] WindowsPrintersMBS Problem

Hi Christian,

Now and again, I hear back from users about their printers not showing up in the popup menu I have, allowing them to select their printer for a particular job. Most who have brought this to my attention are running Windows 7 64bit, though I'm not convinced that alone is the issue. I haven't been able to reproduce this, but know it effects some.

I don't use a print dialog for these print jobs- the user selects their printer and goes through the printer setup so I can capture the string.

Any thoughts on this are appreciated!

Below is the code I am using to create my printer list:

Dim i, c as integer
Dim PrinterList as String

w=new WindowsPrinterMBS
p = WindowsPrinterMBS.GetPrinters
c=UBound(p)

If C<>-1 then

Do Until i = c
w=p(i)
PrinterList=PrinterList+w.PrinterName+","
i=i+1
Loop

PrinterCountÀ
End if

Return PrinterList

Hi Christian,

Yes- Local, USB. I've heard particularly from DNP users, though I cannot reproduce this with my DNP RX1. The info I have so far is that all users are Windows7 64bit users, (Home, Pro), 3 out of 4 are DNP printer users, and the printers are available in other apps.

Would disabling bi-directional communication make a difference?

Thanks-
--Christopher

I think we only enumerate local printers. Is the missing one a remote one?
