Print Queue Exception - How Do I Catch It?

Should see like a relatively obvious one, but I'm unable to actually state that I want to catch this particular type of exception.  Debugging shows that it is of type PrintQueueException, but it never appears in intellisense.  Googling has shown a couple of similar problems but hasn't given me an indication of a solution, and due to standards I can't just catch type Exception.

Does anybody know how I can handle this issue?

I hope this could help you
System.Management.ObjectQuery oq = new System.Management.ObjectQuery
"SELECT * FROM Win32_PrintJob");
ManagementObjectSearcher query1 = new ManagementObjectSearcher(oq);
ManagementObjectCollection queryCollection1 = query1.Get();
foreach( ManagementObject mo in queryCollection1 )
{
Console.WriteLine("Printer Driver : " + mo["DriverName"].ToString());
Console.WriteLine("Document Name : " + mo["Document"].ToString());
Console.WriteLine("Document Owner : " + mo["Owner"].ToString());
Console.WriteLine("==================================");

Hi mate,

Thanks for the code but I'm already returning the printer information that I need, I just need to know how to catch the PrintQueueException as it's unavailable in intellisense.

you can not trap the exception using PrintQueueException class, you can get this class under System.Printing

refer to the following link:
