Printer spool monitor

Hi all,

I need to monitor printer spool. What I want to do is. When ever user
try to print something from any application , the print job should be
paused in the spool and it should popup a dialog asking for a
authorization code. If the authorization code is valid then the printer
job will be send for printing . If the authorization code is not
correct then the print job will be removed from the queue.

The operating system is Windows 98

I can program in C#, VB.net , VB6

I tried WMI but the same code working in XP but not working on a windos
98 box. I have downloaded the WMI core also.

I am looking for another option of creating a hook to the printer
dialog. When ever the printer dialog will popup another dialog will
popup asking for the code. I don't know its possible or not.

Please suggest me...... I have tried a lot without any luck :(

I have created a print button in my windows and web applications. I have two printers. One printer is located at server and another one is at client. The problem is every times I print at client it will spool to my server printer. I wanted to force print directly to my client's local printer. Could anyone show me vb.net codes to solve this problem?

I'm working on an office application that's going to need to print out 300+ billing statements. Since that seems like a lot, I'm thinking that will slow things down, which would be bad. So then I thought that it would be cool if I could just send a billing statement to the printer when the printer wasn't busy printing. Send them to the printer one-at-a-time. System.Drawing.Printing.PrintDocument.EndPrint seemed to be the event I...

However, if I prompt the user for data or if I insert data from a particular record/field in a form Access crashes/closes on its own. I have included the code below, if anyone has any suggestions,...

Hi group, I am new to this group and since I didn´t find anything on Internet related to my problem I wanted to know if anyone know or may help me. What I have to do is: - Monitor a Network Printer - When a specified document is printed (perhaps it can be identified by the name), add a signature at the end of the document. This signature can be any type of digital image (gif, jpg, tiff, etc).

Does any one know how to caputer text data sent to a printer to a file. I have seen a window service that captures text data sent to a printer on the server and save it to a file. I would like to know how to do this. I have many reports that are produced on an IBM mainframe as text that I would like to send to a Windows' sever as printer output but capture to a text file. Currently we use an FTP process and a print to printer would reduce...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
