Windows 7: Windows Photo Viewer's Print Dialog

Windows Photo Viewer's Print Dialog

How can I access the Print Dialog in Windows Photo Viewer through my code in Visual Studio?

I have written an application for our company's software that creates screen captures.

Originally, I sent those images directly to the default imaging application, which is usually Windows Photo Viewer. It works great, is already installed, and almost everyone knows how to use it.

It works so great, though, that some of our computer illiterate employees try to click buttons and use the menus on the screen shot. When they can't get it to work, they call the help desk.

So, I was asked to create a custom image viewer, which was easy. Unfortunately, I can't seem to mimic the feature rich Print Dialog Box (see attached "screenShot.png") that comes with Windows Photo Viewer that Management has become so accustomed to.

Is there an SDK or P/Invoke that I can use to harness the power of Photo Viewer's Print Dialog?

public static void PrintWithSDK(string fullName) {
  // FYI: PhotoViewerPrintDialog does not really exist,
  // or at least I've got it named incorrectly
  using (PhotoViewerPrintDialog dlg = new PhotoViewerPrintDialog()) {
    dlg.ImagePath = fullName;
Above is an example of the type of help I am after.

Does something like this exist?
