How to Disable Windows Select Printer Dialog if Possible



I have a client who migrated from CR 8.5 to CR XI R2 (OCX to RDC) and runs the application in Windows 7 Pro (32bit). The legacy application uses an activex control (VB6) that generates reports (I had to recompile the activeX code with the RDC version). The client needs that when the reports are previewed, the printer button just prints the report on the default printer. Right now the print button comes up with the Print Dialog window. This may incur in a security hole for him with the Find Printer button that enables the operator user to browse through the OS.

In previous threads I saw an article referenced (KB 1212245 - How to use the Printer Setup dialog box) but it seems to be not available anymore. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
