Hello,

I have a problem on VB. I would like to get all printers throught my network, include printers attached on network, removes and adds them and get properties.

E.g. : on one workstation (NT4), I want to get network printer, remove driver and add another drivers on remote.

Is it possible and how ?

Thanks by advance.

There is the Window Scripting Host.  You can access it in your VB6 program, by adding a reference to wshom.ocx, which is normally in the System folder for your operating system.  Look at the WshNetwork class.  It has methods to enumerate, add, and remove printers.

Where can I found this file ?

I've already install the wmicore and scr56en.exe files, but, I don't see the class.

For me, wshom.ocx is in C:\Windows\System32 (XP).
