    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <string.h>
    #include <windows.h>
    main ()
    	PRINTDLG	pd;
    	DOCINFO		di;
    	char*		szMessage;
    	memset (&pd, 0, sizeof(PRINTDLG));
    	memset (&di, 0, sizeof(DOCINFO));
    	di.cbSize = sizeof(DOCINFO);
    	di.lpszDocName = "Test";
    	pd.lStructSize = sizeof(PRINTDLG);
    	pd.Flags = PD_PAGENUMS | PD_RETURNDC;
    	pd.nFromPage = 1;
    	pd.nToPage = 1;
    	pd.nMinPage = 1;
    	pd.nMaxPage = 1;
    	szMessage = 0;
    	if (PrintDlg (&pd))
    		if (pd.hDC)
    			if (StartDoc (pd.hDC, &di) != SP_ERROR)
    				StartPage (pd.hDC);
    				TextOut (pd.hDC, 0, 0, "", 15);
    				EndPage (pd.hDC);
    				EndDoc (pd.hDC);
    				szMessage = "Printed.";
    				szMessage = "Could not start document.";
    			szMessage = "Could not create device context.";
    		szMessage = "Canceled or printer could not be setup.";
    	if (szMessage)
    		MessageBox (NULL, szMessage, "Print Test", MB_OK);
    	return 0;

    Still cutting and pasting as your compleate code has not be run thru a compiler.

    Learning much?

    to get the common dialogs to show you need to include


    watch out for truncation in the DevMode->dmDeviceName if using a network printer (or one with a long driver name).

    Don't forget to free the GDI resources you are allocating.

    Use winmain() not main() in win32 apps
