The DeletePrinter function deletes the specified printer object.
// handle to printer object
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.
The printer handle hPrinter is obtained by calling the OpenPrinter or AddPrinter function. Most users will use OpenPrinter.
If there are print jobs remaining to be processed for the specified printer, DeletePrinter marks the printer for pending deletion, and then deletes it when all the print jobs have been printed. No print jobs can be added to a printer that is marked for pending deletion.
A printer marked for pending deletion cannot be held, but its print jobs can be held, resumed, and restarted. If the printer is held and there are jobs for the printer, DeletePrinter fails with an InvalidState error.
