Using EnumPrinters

This sample shows a very simple console program that displays some information about the local printers installed on the local system. For this, it uses the EnumPrinters() API in level 2, which returns the printers information in a PRINTER_INFO_2 structure array. Some of the information contained therein is:

  • Server name
  • Printer name
  • Share name (if Applicable)
  • Ports the printer is connected to
  • Driver name
  • Comment and location provided by the admin
  • Under Win9x, it says if the printer is the default printer for the system

So, without anything else, here it is: enumprint.c
