Installing printer with logon script.

Hey,
Please help.
I need help adding an IP printer to my network.  IP address is 172.16.1.30.  I know how to manually add it via printer wizard.  However, this will be installed on all PCs through a logon script.  Anyway I can get this done?

Otherwise, something a simple as this should do it...

Dim objNet:set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
objNet.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\172.16.1.30"
set objNet = nothing

This link will do want you want (and more). I use the info from this site to set default printers for users when they log in also.

Hey, Sir.
My logon script is actually in Batch form.  Can I create a .vbs and just paste that into the txt file?

I've tried this:
Dim objNet:set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\172.16.1.30"
set objNet = nothing

But get an error- invalid name.
The problem I seem to have is that this isn't a shared printer from a print server.  I don't want ppl printing to a server, I want them to print directly to the printer.
