When I print my source code from MSDev it still print
it in black and white when I want it in colour.

Can I print the source in colour at all from MSDEV?

If I can, what do I have to do to get the colour
syntax out on the printer as I have it in the editors
in MSDEV ?

I'm going to have to say no on this one.  MSDEV's printer code provides basic printing - and that's it.
However, if you download the eval version of Codewright you can print your source in color.

As jimbucci  says,
MSDEV cannot do color printing directly, So I just suggested some color printing softwares according to the keywords we specify.

MSDEV can print in color if you use an Add-In.

Do you know of an Add-In that does this?

The add-in is called Visual Assist.
I just tested it out, and it doesn't let you print directly from MSDEV.
However, what you can do is copy and paste it to any Rich text editor, and then print it from there in color.

In other words, with Visual Assist, you can open a source file and copy the entire contents to the clipboard.
Then open MS Word, and paste the contents.  The contents will paste in color.
From there you can print it in color.

With out Visual Assist, if you copy and paste the contents, the contents gets pasted in black and white.
