Does your printing routine write out any files, and if so, does it 
write them to the Program files directory or some other "out of 
bounds" location. If so, that will be a problem. If you need to write 
files, they should be saved somewhere in the user's area of the 
Application and Settings folder (typically create a folder for your 
app in the user's Application Data folder). Alternatively, have the 
users install the app inside their area of the Applications & 
Settings folder.
