Flash won't be able to detect the printer attached to the system virtually or not...  Flash only invokes the print function, and the rest depends on the browser...

yes , flash is detect any printer... but user must select...

the code like this:
import flash.printing.PrintJob;
import flash.display.Sprite;
import flash.printing.PrintJobOptions;


var printer:PrintJob = new PrintJob();
var po:PrintJobOptions = new PrintJobOptions(true);

if ( printer.start() )
{
	var spr:Sprite = new Sprite();
	addChild(spr);
	
	spr.addChild(kutu01);
	spr.addChild(kutu02);
	spr.addChild(kutu03);
	
	if (printer.orientation == "portrait")
	{
		spr.rotation = 90;
	}
	
	printer.addPage(spr,null,po);
	
	printer.send();
	
	
}
else
{
	trace ("there is no printer...");
}
