Watch Question

You will not be able to create a printer driver from VB...

However, you could create a DLL that would send print to a specified printer, which could the the Windows Generic Text Printer driver.

You can't create a printer driver.

Here, at work, we need to send postscript file to Xerox printer trough a generic text only driver, because we don't want interpretation. We had to modify a flag in the registry to do that, and print using API.

If it is that that you need, tell me, and I will post the code.

If you want I can email you a generic text only printer driver.
Also tell me why do you need it.
I had some programs that needed a generic printer driver that are not common
and it works for me.
