DeletePrinterConnection function

The DeletePrinterConnection function deletes a connection to a printer that was established by a call to AddPrinterConnection or ConnectToPrinterDlg.

Syntax


BOOL DeletePrinterConnection(
  _In_  LPTSTR pName
);

Parameters

pName [in]

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the name of the printer connection to delete.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is a nonzero value.

If the function fails, the return value is zero.

Remarks

Note  This is a blocking or synchronous function and might not return immediately. How quickly this function returns depends on run-time factors such as network status, print server configuration, and printer driver implementation—factors that are difficult to predict when writing an application. Calling this function from a thread that manages interaction with the user interface could make the application appear to be unresponsive.

The DeletePrinterConnection function does not delete any printer driver files that were copied to the server to which the printer is attached.
