Populate a combo box with installed printers

I have had a look around for this and although it does seem possible i cant seem to find it. I am using VB2005.net and i want to populate a combobox with a list of installed printers. How can i do it.
Most things i have read say start with DIM DEV as PRINTER but printer is not avaliable as an option

Any ideas as this is urgent
