Dim enumerationFlags() As EnumeratedPrintQueueTypes = {EnumeratedPrintQueueTypes.Local, EnumeratedPrintQueueTypes.Shared}

Dim printServer As New LocalPrintServer()

'Use the enumerationFlags to filter out unwanted print queues
Dim printQueuesOnLocalServer As PrintQueueCollection = printServer.GetPrintQueues(enumerationFlags)

Console.WriteLine("These are your shared, local print queues:" & vbLf & vbLf)

For Each printer As PrintQueue In printQueuesOnLocalServer
	Console.WriteLine(vbTab & "The shared printer " & printer.Name & " is located at " & printer.Location & vbLf)
