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.

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.
