Get, Add and remove printers on network

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.

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