Determine list of printers installed in C# (.Net Framework)

1. Add System.Drawing library as reference.

2. Import the System.Drawing.Printing.
using System.Drawing.Printing;

3. PrinterSettings.InstalledPrinters is a string collection of the printer names installed on the machine

Example to output all printers on Console:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Drawing.Printing;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace PrintersDemo
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            for(int i = 0; i < PrinterSettings.InstalledPrinters.Count; i++)

2. In the Project Properties window, On the left pane, select Run/Debug/Profile
3. On the right pane, Edit the Default configuration (or double click on Default)
4. In the Edit run configuration window, select Launch Settings
5. For 'Java option' text box, add -Duser.timezone="+04:00"

You will probably need to save and restart JDeveloper for the changes to take effect.
