Installing a printer driver from a program??

Post by Will Brya » Fri, 06 Oct 1995 04:00:00


How do I create a program (using Borland Pascal 7.0 & Windoze 3.1) that will
install a predefined printer driver?  This is to be part of an installation

I'd appreciate any replies being sent to me as

as our mail system still doesn't seem to be working properly.

Thanks in advance, Will.

local computer. But I don't know how to fill the DRIVER_INFO_2 structure.

of DRIVER_INFO_2 structure?
