the context

i use Spooler Events API to capture events generated by the spooler when a user prints a document ie.

FindFirstPrinterChangeNotification
FindNextPrinterChangeNotification

the problem

When I print a document on the network printers from my machine no events are captured by the monitor (uses the fuctions above)

Notice

Events ARE generated OK for local printers, only Network Printers are problematic!
