i have to develop a software which will be a windows printer driver. It will be appeared in the printer list.

When i sent a file to this printer, this printer will save it to a location as bitmap.

How i can do that, which samples can i try or what shuold i research exactly? What programming language should i use?

What I have tried:

I'm looking the msdn documents and github samples for 2 weeks. There is not much information about it and the documents on the internet are too old.

Edit: For Richard MacCutchan's solution: For 2 weeks, i read all MSDN windows printer documents. I have checked out 100 github projects and so many websites. But i couldnt manage it. All i want is your guidance.

Two weeks and you did not try: Google for "Windows driver development".

Go to Windows Driver Kit documentation | Microsoft Docs[^]. That is where you will find all the information related to writing drivers.
