    Is there a way to programmatically or otherwise keep AutoCAD from listing
    the network shared printers?

    I create all the appropriate PC3 files and have those on a network share,
    but I still see the 4-5 plotters shown as \\server\hp600, \\server\ln5455,
    or otherwise.

    I only want the users to only see the PC3 files when selecting a plot

    Options->Plotting lower left corner is a checkbox "Hide Systems

    I'm not sure which variable this is to set it in a program.

  3. It is mysteriously left out of AcadPreferences in the Object Model so I set the following Registry Key to a value of 1:
    \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R16.0\ACAD-202:409\Profiles\<<Unnamed Profile>>\General\HideSystemPrinters
