Impersonated user and printing
Posted on 2004-03-25
I have an app which is working under the name of a user account different from the currently logged on one, i.e. impersonated user account from a Windows domain. The account which my app is impersonating has been added to the local workstation and a default printer has been assigned to it. The currently logged on user also has the same printer set as a default one. However, when I try to print something I get a message 'There is no default printer'. If both accounts are equal then printing is always successful.
What is the problem and how could it be solved? I know I can revert to self, print and impersonate the user again but that's not I'm after. I hope there is a better solution.
Environment: Delphi 5 Ent, Win 2000/XP.
Thanks in advance.
