                            Dim Printd As New PrintDialog()
                            Dim res As DialogResult = Printd.ShowDialog()

                            printDocument1.DocumentName = "c:\TEMP\TestT.rtf"                            Printd.Document = printDocument1
                            Printd.AllowSomePages = True
                            Printd.ShowHelp = True

                            If (res = DialogResult.OK) Then
                                printDocument1.Print()
                            End If

How our DevOps Teams Maximize Uptime

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us. Read the use case whitepaper.

With PrintDocument you have to do all of the drawing to the page yourself. What you are attempting to do now will not work. You can certainly do the work to print the RTF document using PrintDocument if you like, but I think you would find it easier to use the Process class and pass the "Print" verb.

e.g.

Dim printer As New System.Diagnostics.Process()

printer.StartInfo.FileName = "C:\path\to\file.rtf"
printer.StartInfo.Verb = "Print"
printer.Start()

Open in new window

I try with below code too...
                    Dim p As New Process
                    p.StartInfo.FileName = "C:\\TEMP\TestT.rtf"
                    'p.StartInfo.WindowStyle = Diagnostics.ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden
                    p.StartInfo.Verb = "print"
                    p.Start()

This is working fine on my local box ..But when i deployed into teat server this is not working.
Printing is not working.

Are you running the application as a user who has access to that path?

I figured out it:
here are the steps:

Converting RTF to PDF by using 3rd party DLL's.
Lading pdf into IFRAME
Printing from the IFRAME.
