Delete specific printers using con2prt in logon script

I'm using con2prt.exe to set printers for users based on the computer location in a logon script (we use roaming profiles).

I need to delete all the NETWORK printers first then reset the correct ones.  I need to keep any the local printer from deleting.

If I use "CON2PRT /f " to delete printers, does that only delete all the NETWORK printers, or ALL printers.

If it deletes ALL printers, can I use just add "delete" or "del" to the front of this command to delete specific Printers?  Or what is the syntax?
CON2PRT /c \\PrintServer\PrintShare

Thanks.

con2prt will only handle network printers, so, yes, you can use it without problems and without deleting your local printers.
