It seemed suspicious to me anyway.. How do those integer shifts creep into my retyped header files 
again and again? mmmmhhh ... *g

a struct.. that contains what? the function pointers and results? i had thought about adding a 
macro.. for hooking driver exports..

yeah it jsut was a quick and dirty preview patch ;)

statement totally makes sense.

I dont really grok it... like the DDI_FUNCS array in the patch i sent you or rather somethign
stuct {
     LPWSTR name;
     LPWSTR driverdll;
     HMODULE hdriver;
     LPWSTR interfacedll;
     HMODULE hinterface,
     DWORD refcount;
} printertriver_t;

ok just need to transplant my old code

so shall i put the ddi call before that deprecated stuff? and does it need to be called from docpropsA?
oh and I reodne the EnumForms patch (now less monsterous ;). Now here's only the part that provides 
the builtin forms, but very easy to expand, once its ready to be &/ comimtted i'll do the addforms 
delforms stuff..
and oh sh1t gotta write my soc application today last day heh.. this time i'm opting for drupal/php 
code though C/win32api is just too hellish *g
