DRIVER_INFO_4 structure

The DRIVER_INFO_4 structure contains printer driver information.

Syntax


typedef struct _DRIVER_INFO_4 {
  DWORD  cVersion;
  LPTSTR pName;
  LPTSTR pEnvironment;
  LPTSTR pDriverPath;
  LPTSTR pDataFile;
  LPTSTR pConfigFile;
  LPTSTR pHelpFile;
  LPTSTR pDependentFiles;
  LPTSTR pMonitorName;
  LPTSTR pDefaultDataType;
  LPTSTR pszzPreviousNames;
} DRIVER_INFO_4, *PDRIVER_INFO_4;

Members

cVersion

The operating system version for which the driver was written. The supported value is 3.

pName

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the name of the driver (for example, "QMS 810").

pEnvironment

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the environment for which the driver was written (for example, Windows x86, Windows IA64, and Windows x64).

pDriverPath

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies a file name or full path and file name for the file that contains the device driver (for example, C:\DRIVERS\Pscript.dll).

pDataFile

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies a file name or a full path and file name for the file that contains driver data (for example, C:\DRIVERS\Qms810.ppd).

pConfigFile

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies a file name or a full path and file name for the device driver's configuration dynamic-link library (for example, C:\DRIVERS\Pscrptui.dll).

pHelpFile

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies a file name or a full path and file name for the device driver's help file.

pDependentFiles

A pointer to a MultiSZ buffer that contains a sequence of null-terminated strings. Each null-terminated string in the buffer contains the name of a file the driver depends on. The sequence of strings is terminated by an empty, zero-length string. If pDependentFiles is not NULL and does not contain any file names, it will point to a buffer that contains two empty strings.

pMonitorName

A pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies a language monitor (for example, PJL monitor). This member can be NULL and should be specified only for printers capable of bidirectional communication.

pDefaultDataType

A pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the default data type of the print job (for example, EMF).

pszzPreviousNames

A pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies previous printer driver names that are compatible with this driver. For example, OldName1\0OldName2\0\0.
