How quickly this function returns depends on run-time factors such as network status, print server configuration, and printer driver implementation. Calling this function could make the ScriptX.Services Server appear to be unresponsive temporarily.
NOTE: Only use this function where a connection has already been made (and removed) before, in other words, where the required printer drivers are already available.
