How do I write a script (or more correctly, a daemon) that will listen for print jobs and run a script when the user prints?

Basically when the user prints I want to open a browser window that takes them to a portal we have setup to do some data entry.

Any Ideas?

I am running Windows 7 Professional.

I doubt that anybody will be able to answer this question without knowing what operating system your platform is running. (Don’t respond with another comment; edit the question to add clarifying detail.) –  Scott Dec 6 '12 at 21:53
    
It can be done by using a macro which changes the action of Ctrl-P. AutoHotKey (a free download) could be used to create one. However, there are many different ways of starting a print, and it would be tricky to catch all of them. –  hdhondt Dec 9 '12 at 23:39
