Silent install of network printers

I am using

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /q /dn /n\\Printsvr\NetPrint  // delete printer
and
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /q /in /n\\Printsvr\NetPrint   // add printer

for managing the available printers on notebooks, as them often are at locations with no access to the home-based printers.

It works well, except one thing that bugs me; despite using the /q(uiet) parameter, on each occassion when installing the printers a "Connecting to..." window pops up until the connection is established.

Any possibility to work around/suppress this?

I hate to say it but I believe the answer is no.

You may be able to use a utility to hide the resulting window. Maybe something like this ...
