Does anyone know of any considerations that must be used when showing a C# printdialog when using windows server 2008?  The code is bare bones:

PrintDialog pd = new PrintDialog();
pd.ShowDialog();

These 2 lines show the dialog box on windows xp and windows vista, but when I compile and execute on my Server 2008 machine, the dialog box does not open.  Any ideas?

Ok, does anyone know of a way to get around said security issue?  Is there another type of print dialog available?  Or does something have to be set in order for it to show?

It turns out that this is a dicrepancy between visual studio 2003 and 2008.  since the control was added in the 03 version, it needed to be re-added in the 08 version for it to work.

The answer, more specifically:

printDialog1.UseEXDialog = true;

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the dialog should be shown in the Windows XP style for systems running Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003 or later.
