Greetings,

I am trying to add printers on Windows XP Pro with SP2 with the command  'rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n \\server\printer' in a batch file attached to user profile located on Windows 2003 active directory.  

I can get the batch file to run if i am a local or domain admin. Also if i ran it once and the printer is added then "users" can also add it.  But I dont want to have to run the batch file as administrator on all the machines before users run it.

How can I get it to run if the user have only "user" privileges?


I've found a posting saying it is only do-able by saving profiles after installing it.. is that true?
