Hello,

I am trying to build an application that watches a paused printer queue on windows.
I searched everwhere but until now nothing found.
Does anybody know how to get a list of waiting jobs for a specific printer, the  belonging physical spool files for those jobs (location) and then a way to copy that file and delete the orginal in the spool directory.
In this way i want to capture the print jobs alter them and send them to a new printer.
The code must be in VB or VB.net (preferable vb 6)

thanks in advance
