how to print from a cgi-application

how do I print from a cgi-application (under WinNT4.0) ?
I'm using IIS3.0.
I get the following exception: at this time no standard printer available but at the command line the program works well.

Your CGI was executed as user defined in HTML server - try add default printer for this user.

1.log as the html user (check yout HTTPD for user name and password)
2.try to execute your CGI
3.if your CGI works I am on wrong way, but if not you must add default printer for this user.

It was an great idea, but it dosnt work.
So you can execute your CGI as HTTPD user or not ? I can't understand what happened.

sorry, my answer was a little short.

Yes, I can execute my CGI as HTTPD user without any problems.

In last days I found a solution: using the SetPrinter-Function and setting the printer by hand works fine.
