Installing Printers without having to reboot

G'day all,

I have an app that installs a printer, at the moment the printer does not appear until I have rebooted the PC. I would like to be able to install the printer without having to reboot the PC. Does anyone have any ideas on how I might be able to do this.

Stop the print spooler service and restart it. Should eliminate the need to reboot.
thanks very much, works a treat.
