The AddPrintProcessor function installs a print processor on the specified server and adds the print-processor name to an internal list of supported print processors.

BOOL AddPrintProcessor(

    LPTSTR pName,

// pointer to server name

    LPTSTR pEnvironment,

// pointer to environment name

    LPTSTR pPathName,

// pointer to path

    LPTSTR pPrintProcessorName 

// pointer to print-processor name



Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the name of the server on which the print processor should be installed. If this parameter is NULL, the print processor is installed locally.
Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the environment. For example, “Windows x86” specifies Windows running on an Intel 80386 or 80486 processor. If this parameter is NULL, the current environment of the caller/client (not of the destination/server) is used.
Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the name of the file that contains the print processor. This file must be in the system print-processor directory.
Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the name of the print processor.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


Before calling the AddPrintProcessor function, an application should verify that the file containing the print processor is stored in the system print-processor directory. An application can retrieve the name of the system print-processor directory by calling the GetPrintProcessorDirectory function.

An application can determine the name of existing print processors by calling the EnumPrintProcessors function.
