Hi,

void MyDialog::DoBeginPrint()
{
   AfxGetApp()->CreatePrinterDC(dc);
   ???

Try to call
AfxGetApp()->SelectPrinter(NULL, NULL);
prior to CreatePrinterDC it should work

or you can use a

CPrintDialog and build your own CDC with CreateDC with all information from CPrintDialog, this dialog box can ask you wich printer to use or you can use the member function of this dialog named GetDefaults() to retrieve default printer, then use all information drivername, portname, devicename and devmode needed to Create a printable DC.

Hope that will help you...
