This method returns an HRESULT value.


In Windows 8.1 a new flag, PRINTER_ACCESS_MANAGE_LIMITED, has been introduced to grant print queue permissions that are more limited than PRINTER_ACCESS_ADMINISTER, but more powerful than PRINTER_ACCESS_USE.

The permissions are a subset of those associated with PRINTER_ACCESS_ADMINISTER. This means that if the currently logged-on user has PRINTER_ACCESS_ADMINISTER permission, the user can gain PRINTER_ACCESS_MANAGE_LIMITED access to the queue.

A call to set a property on a queue property bag will fail with ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED, if the user does not have the appropriate permission. This behavior was true before PRINTER_ACCESS_MANAGE_LIMITED was introduced, and it's still the current behavior.
