No Printers are detected when running the site outside of Visual Studio 2013 in IIS7

I've built an application to print documents. When running the application using Visual Studio - debugging mode I could receive the list of available printers using :


and then , I select one of them to print the document using :

PrintDocument printDocument = new PrintDocument();
printDocument.PrinterSettings.PrinterName = "Fax" ; //or any other listed printer that is returned from the method above
printDocument.PrintPage += printDocument_PrintPage;

void printDocument_PrintPage(object sender, PrintPageEventArgs e)
    e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(new Pen(Color.Red,10),new Rectangle(0,0,100,100));

This works inside of Visual Studio, but when I migrate it to IIS 7 root folder on the same computer, it gives an error "there's no printers installed"

Note: I still can get the same list of available printers when I deploy the application to the root folder, but when Print() method is called, the web application throws the error.

I am using the namespace System.Drawing.Printing

Update : I did check the System.Printing namespace reference page, it also shows a box says :

"Classes within the System.Printing namespace are not supported for use within a Windows service or ASP.NET application or service."


I had the same issue, you could see in service how RPC (in services) is running (network service | local sytem) and put that in the application pool on IIS adance setting Identity.

I hope I could help!.
