Why on earth this code wouldnt work on a client computer but it will work on my computer IF I directly run it from visual studio?

        public static extern bool AddPrinterConnection(string pName);
        public static extern bool SetDefaultPrinter(string printerName);
        public void printers()

            string printername = this.ListBox1.SelectedItem.Text.ToString();
            bool result = AddPrinterConnection(@"\\Servername\" + printername);
            bool resultdef = SetDefaultPrinter(@"\\Servername\" + printername);
