We have an application that prints to quite many printers and all of these printers are defined on one Windows 2003 server with service pack 2. Issue is we need a program or method to export information on the status of the printer queues, documents in queue, status, comments location basically the information shown in Printer and faxes folder.

I know Windows 2003 server R2 has some utilities but we cant set the print server as ye.

Our options are porgraming using Windows API or looking for shareware which can retrieve this data in a CSV file. Appreciate any pointers

did you try using wmic command line? something like:

wmic /node:{printservername} printer get Name, Location, Comment, Queued, Status

These are the other items you can add to the get query:
