2.2.3.10 Server Handle Key Values

Server Handle Key Values are used to store printer configuration data. The values named in the following table MUST be supported by print servers as follows:

  • In a call to RpcGetPrinterData or RpcGetPrinterDataEx, the pValueName parameter identifies the data that MUST be returned in the pData parameter. The value pointed to by pValueName MUST be one of the strings specified in the "Server handle key value name" column.

    The specified registry type values are defined in section 2.2.3.9.

  • If the "Read-write" column is checked, a print server SHOULD keep track of the value set by a call to RpcSetPrinterData or RpcSetPrinterDataEx in the pData parameter, and it SHOULD return the same value in a subsequent call to RpcGetPrinterData or RpcGetPrinterDataEx.

  • The "Meaning" column describes the printer configuration data that is associated with the server handle key value name, and in some cases it specifies print server behavior. If the "Behavior optional" column is checked, that behavior is implementation-specific and not mandatory.

    "PrintDriverIsolationOverrideCompat"

    REG_DWORD

    X

    An integer value that specifies if the print server overrides the printer driver's indication of printer driver isolation compatibility.<225>
