AddPrintProvidor info  Overview  Group

The AddPrintProvidor function installs a local printer provider and links the configuration, data, and provider files. Future releases of Windows may allow remote installation of printer providers.

BOOL AddPrintProvidor (

    LPTSTR pName,

// pointer to server name

    DWORD Level,

// provider information structure level

    LPBYTE pProvidorInfo 

// pointer to provider information structure



Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the name of the server on which the provider should be installed. For this release of Windows 95 and Windows NT, providers may only be installed locally, so this parameter should be NULL.
Specifies the level of the structure to which pProvidorInfo points. This value must be 1.
Pointer to a PROVIDOR_INFO_1 structure.

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 an application calls the AddPrintProvidor function, all files required by the provider must be copied to the SYSTEM32 directory.

A provider added by AddPrintProvidor may be removed by calling DeletePrintProvidor.
