Question:
I use the class RawPrinterHelper from microsoft support(see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322091). I added one more parameter "Copies" to function:
Public Shared Function SendFileToPrinter(ByVal szPrinterName As String, ByVal szFileName As String, ByVal Copies As Integer) As Boolean, changed:bSuccess = SendBytesToPrinter(szPrinterName, pUnmanagedBytes, fs.Length) to :
Dim i As Integer
For i = 1 To Copies
    bSuccess = SendBytesToPrinter(szPrinterName, pUnmanagedBytes, fs.Length)
Next

But if the copies is big number(999), print spool service gets errors. I know it is not a good way to tell the printer how many copies to print by sending multiple times for the same data. I wonder if we can set the copies in StartPagePrint or what is the best to tell the functions the number of copies.

The proposed way does not work for us.

We will use the printer commands for the printer and connect directly.
