Hi all.

I am looking for some documents describing how to write my own printer driver for Windows (all versions). Did anyone knows where I can find them?

Regards.

I doubt if you could use the same driver on both 9x and NT family OS.

Hello,

you can try here :

http://www.microsoft.com/hwdev/
Find the tools, specifications, and guidelines you need to design
hardware and create drivers that work well with the Microsoft?
Windows? family of operating systems.

and you can find a NT & 2k source here :
http://www.beyondlogic.org/porttalk/porttalk.htm


But I think as The Svin, you may have hard time to make
one driver for all windows....

*EVEN* if some people claim to be able to do so :

Cross OS portability: Applications are binary-compatible across
Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP and source code compatible across
Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/CE, Linux, Solaris and VxWorks.

Hi.

Maybe you don't understand me right. So I don't need to write one driver for both windowses. I simply write an application that will need specific printer driver. So I want to write one (or probably two - for 9x and NT) because I want my application works on both windows clones - 9x and NT.
