Default Retrieve printer information within a web service

I'm trying to retrieve the printer information of a computer using WMI and web services. I used this piece of code:

public String GetPrinter()
  oq = new System.Management.ObjectQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_PrinterDriver");
  query = new ManagementObjectSearcher(oMs,oq);
  queryCollection = query.Get();
  foreach ( ManagementObject mo in queryCollection)
    return mo["Caption"].ToString();
  return "done";

it works fine if i try it in command line but if i call it from a web service the query returns empty. The same piece of code works if i try to retrieve other information (i.e if i replace Win32_Printer by Win32_SoundCard or something else).

Does anybody have an idea of what i'm doing wrong?

Thanks for your help
