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 NT x86, Windows IA64, and Windows x64.

pDriverPath

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies a file name or a 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 (for example, C:\DRIVERS\Pscrptui.hlp).

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.

ftDriverDate

The date of the driver package, as coded in the driver files.

dwlDriverVersion

Version number of the driver. This comes out of the version structure of the driver.

pszMfgName

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the manufacturer's name.

pszOEMUrl

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the URL for the manufacturer.

pszHardwareID

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the hardware ID for the printer driver.

pszProvider

Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the provider of the printer driver (for example, "Microsoft Windows 2000")

Remarks

The strings for these members are contained in the .inf file that is used to add the driver.

If you call AddPrinterDriver or AddPrinterDriverEx with Level not equal to 6, and then you call GetPrinterDriver or EnumPrinterDrivers with Level equal to 6, the DRIVER_INFO_6 structure is returned with pszMfgName, pszOEMUrl, pszHardwareID, and pszProvider set to NULL, dwlDriverVersion set to 0, and ftDriverDate set to (0,0).
