  • Code for Printer Settings not working.

    Hi, I'm running this script to load printer settings on a server. A program sends a print request to the server. Running on the server is another program to accept the print requests and actually print the jobs. Before printing, this program runs a file that contains printer settings. Now, it does change the default printer settings (change from single side printing to double-sided ), but the print jobs use the 'Printing Preferences', which are unchanged and set to single-side printing. Is there a way to change the 'Printing preferences'?

    Thanks for any ideas,

      Could we see the contents of "file.dat" to see if it gives us any clues
      Also, what is the model of the printer?
