I'm not exactly sure of the question, but you can use the VB Printers collection to locate all printers that the current Windows session knows about.

very simple
get the all printers using printers collection
i think u not need code for getting printers into the collection.

then get each and every devicename and using instr find the printer devicename which starts with string '//'. that's it these names are currently connected network printers.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?
