If the printer uses a regular Windows driver or even the generic Windows Plain Text printer driver, then just follow Petzold's chapter in Programming Windows (5th or 6th edition) regarding printing. On Windows as long as you have the correct print driver, the printing code is always the same. 5th edition is for WinForms, while 6th edition is for more modern XAML based apps.

On Windows yes. This not like the days of DOS when each program had to carry around it's own printer drivers and so it became an arms race among the word processors and desktop publishing apps over who supported the most printers.
