        Description

        Given a windows environment having local and remote printers. Calls to the invoke method lookupPrintServices() on class PrinterJob or PrintServiceLookup will only show changes in the local printers.

        The problem lies on the usage of a windows library call that only captures changes on local printers. A alternate solution would be to react on registry printer changes as described here;
