I don't know for API but you can try with the VB object called "Printer" by checking at "Printer.DeviceName".

This will list the valid printer drivers and printers to the debug window:


Dim x As Printer
For Each x In Printers
    Debug.Print "Driver: " & x.DriverName & "    Printer:" & x.DeviceName
Next


Cheers!
