I need your help in wrting a simple printer driver(windows 2000 os).When i select my printer from the print option it has to call my appilcation (say xyz.exe) and the file name with the path from where it is invoked.
Try using Compuware (former Numega) Driver Suite or Studio,
it comes together with the famous SoftIce debugger, features a C++ framework and other goodies. Another option would be BSquare's WinDK.
With MS DDK, WinDK and Jungo's WinDriver you will be writing a driver, if you use Jungo's KernelDriver or BSquare's WinRT you could avoid it and implement driver functionality in your application - slower and clumsier than an outgrown driver but easier to debug and develop.
Most of these products have example printer drivers.
By the way, without SoftIce you will need a second computer for the debugging!
you can see winddk's example.
when i first begin .i study the ddk example - generalsys - ,it is a simple program .teach you driver entry,how to registry driver. then you can learn how to program interrupt driver model.
We've a requirement to develope a text only printer driver. Can anybody tell me how only the Text portion can be filtered from any document? For example if anybody selects this TextPrinter from a word doc then only text portion need to be printed.
