i downloaded and run and am still told that vs2008 cannot be used. i need a newer version.
have you check my 00009.spl file?

Hi,

>>i downloaded and run and am still told that vs2008 cannot be used. i need a newer version.

This is the vs2010 project, maybe this is reason that you can't open it in vs2008.

However, you can create a blank vs2008 project, set the compile type to x86, you can insert following code into your vs2008 project, then you can compile and run your vs2008 project properly,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        [DllImport("ReadInfo.dll", EntryPoint = "ReadInfoFromPCLFile")]
        public static extern Int32 ReadInfoFromPCLFile(
            string fileName,
            Int32 bIsRenderToPDF,
            ref uint bwPageCount,
            ref uint colorPageCount,
            ref uint copyCount,
            ref double pagewidth,
            ref double pageheight,
            StringBuilder paperSizeName);

        [DllImport("ReadInfo.dll", EntryPoint = "ReadInfoSetCode")]
        public static extern void ReadInfoSetCode(string strCode);

        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            if (args.Length != 1)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("test.exe C:\\test.pcl");
                Console.WriteLine("test.exe C:\\test.ps");
                return;
            }
            Console.Write("args length is ");
            Console.WriteLine(args.Length); // Write array length
            for (int i = 0; i < args.Length; i++) // Loop through array
            {
                string argument = args[i];
                Console.Write("args index ");
                Console.Write(i); // Write index
                Console.Write(" is [");
                Console.Write(argument); // Write string
                Console.WriteLine("]");
            }
            string fileName = args[0];
            int bIsRenderToPDF = 1;
            uint bwPageCount = 0;
            uint colorPageCount = 0;
            uint copyCount = 0;
            double nPageWidth = 0;
            double nPageHeight = 0;
            StringBuilder strPaperSizeName = new StringBuilder(300);

            ReadInfoSetCode("XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX");
            ReadInfoFromPCLFile(fileName, bIsRenderToPDF, ref bwPageCount, ref colorPageCount,
                    ref copyCount, ref nPageWidth, ref nPageHeight, strPaperSizeName);

            Console.WriteLine(String.Format("File: {0}", fileName));
            Console.WriteLine(String.Format("Render To PDF: {0}", bIsRenderToPDF));
            Console.WriteLine(String.Format("BW Pages: {0}", bwPageCount));
            Console.WriteLine(String.Format("Color Pages: {0}", colorPageCount));
            Console.WriteLine(String.Format("Width: {0}", nPageWidth));
            Console.WriteLine(String.Format("Height: {0}", nPageHeight));
            Console.WriteLine(String.Format("Paper name: {0}", strPaperSizeName));
        }
    }

how do I read the printer name, username and other info from the spl file.
================================================
>>how do I read the printer name, username and other info from the spl file.

PCL format doesn't contain printer name, username and other info, these information are store in .SHD file of print job, but not included in PCL file, so we can't retrieve these information from PCL file.
