Unidrv Capabilities

The Universal Printer Driver (Unidrv) provides the following capabilities:

  • Support for all non-Postscript printers, using printer-specific Unidrv minidrivers that describe each printer's characteristics.

  • A Unidrv user interface, based on the TreeView control and property sheets, that is consistent for all printers, but is also modifiable for each printer's unique options.

  • A single Unidrv renderer that, along with the GDI graphics engine, converts Microsoft Win32 GDI calls from applications into printer commands that can be sent to the print spooler.
