DeletePrintProvidor function

The DeletePrintProvidor function removes a print provider added by the AddPrintProvidor function.

Syntax


BOOL DeletePrintProvidor(
  _In_  LPTSTR pName,
  _In_  LPTSTR pEnvironment,
  _In_  LPTSTR pPrintProviderName
);

Parameters

pName [in]

Reserved; must be NULL.

pEnvironment [in]

A pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the environment from which the provider is to be removed (for example, Windows NT x86, Windows IA64, or Windows x64). If this parameter is NULL, the provider is removed from the current environment of the calling application and client machine (not of the destination application and print server). NULL is the recommended value because it provides maximum portability.

pPrintProviderName [in]

A pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the name of the provider to be removed.

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.
