When I try to run this and other WSH scripts I get this error.

Any Idea?

Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A01A8)
Object required: 'WScript'

<%
Set NWPrinter = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set NWPPath = "\\Server\Printer"
NWPrinter.AddWindowsPrinterConnection(NWPPath)
Set rc = NWPrinter.AddWindowsPrinterConnection(NWPPath)
If Not rc then
     WScript.Echo("Unable to install printer at this time.")
End If
NWPrinter.SetDefaultPrinter NWPPath
%>

How about this?

<%
Set NWPrinter = Server.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
NWPPath = "\\Server\Printer"
Set rc = NWPrinter.AddWindowsPrinterConnection(NWPPath)
If Not rc then
    WScript.Echo("Unable to install printer at this time.")
End If
NWPrinter.SetDefaultPrinter NWPPath

Set NWPrinter = Nothing
%>

How could I check to see if the Wscript object was installed on the server?

After reinstalling the server and installing WScript 5.6 I tried it again.  
The code to install the printer only work's when running through a VBS file & not via ASP.  I believe this is a limitation to WScript 5.6.  I can use other functions of the OCX ok Like mapping & unmapping network drives viewing network shares etc.
