The Printer Compatibility Library allows you to upgrade your VB6 code that used the Printer and Printers Collection with little or no changes required.

  • The Microsoft Visual Basic Printer Compatibility Library allows projects that used the Printer and Printers Collection in Visual Basic 6.0 to be upgraded without having to re-write your printing logic. By simply adding a reference to the library, declaring a Printer and making a few minor syntax changes, your project will be able to print using the Printers collection and Printer object as it did in Visual Basic 6.0.
