 Set Default Printer

Here's the problem.  I have this label printer that will
only print if it is the default printer.  If it's not the
default, I get a label with a black line down the middle
of it.  Therefore, I really need to be able to change the
default printer.  This all has to be done for NT.  On
2000/XP I can use the SetDefaultPrinter function in
Winspool.drv, but I can't find anything that works in NT.

Thanks for you help.

The way to retrieve/set the default printer on WinNT 4.0 is different from
Win2000. You can check the following article for the information:
HOWTO: Retrieve and Set the Default Printer in Windows;EN-US;Q246772

(This is a C sample but the idea should be the same.)
