parallel port

I develop a program that shuold drive a printer with parallel port.
I use mingw environment (win2000).
With CreateFile, WriteFile i'm able to print, but i need to know when the printer is busy, in error and so on. I try to read status pins on register address but system block me. I check in internet but i find nothing usefull. Microsoft documents tell nothing clearly.

Can someone help me? Where can i find some example or instructions?

Thanks in advance
