Printer Queue


I have an exe that prints a number of word documents at one time, and I want to open the Printer Queue dialog for the user. This dialog is opened through Start\Settings\Printers and then by double clicking on a printer icon.) I can get to the printer folder with this code:
Shell "rundll32 shell32.dll,SHHelpShortcuts_RunDLL PrintersFolder

But I can't seem figure out how a way to get queue dialog opened.

I'm using VB6.
