Where does this printer live, locally attached or network queue?
It may be you need just the printer name, or it may be that you need a
computer name, too.
The above example printer happens to be shared as
"\\Carol\SamsungML" (without the double quotes).
No? Then, my second guess would be timing; that is, the IO has already
been opened (to the default printer) by the time you evaluate the
INIPut(), to change the printer name.
No? Then, my third guess would be that you need to make your INI resident
(Options, Settings, Environment, Preferences tab, Line 10: Resident
MAGIC.INI) and change the "force write" argument in the
INIPut() expression to 'TRUE'LOG.
No? Then I give up. ;)

- The most likely explanation is that the printer name specified in the
INI file does not match the actual Windows Printer Name. I remember one
instance that drove me nuts until I realized that actual the Windows
Printer Name had two spaces in it. I thought it was "Zebra
LP2824" when, in fact, it was "ZebraÂ
- This is a case where a miss is as great as a mile. If the name in the
INI doesn't match EXACTLY, Magic falls back to the default
