		''' <summary>
		''' Changes the user-default PrintTicket setting of the specified print queue.

		''' <param name="queue">the printer whose user-default PrintTicket setting needs to be changed</param>

			' duplexing printing is supported by the printer.

			Dim printcap As PrintCapabilities = queue.GetPrintCapabilities()

			'
			' The printer's duplexing capability is returned as a read-only collection of duplexing options
			' that can be supported by the printer. If the collection returned contains the duplexing
			' option we want to set, it means the duplexing option we want to set is supported by the printer,

				'
				' Then merge the delta PrintTicket onto the printer's current user-default PrintTicket,

				' printer's new user-default PrintTicket.

				Dim result As ValidationResult = queue.MergeAndValidatePrintTicket(queue.UserPrintTicket, deltaTicket)

				'
				' The duplexing option we want to set could be constrained by other PrintTicket settings
