VBScript for deploying printer is not working for Windows Vista machines

VBscript for deploying shared printer is not working for Windows Vista.

It was perfectly working for current machines which are running in Windows XP Professional and Windows 2000 Professional.

I use two newly purchased machines come with pre-loaded Windows Vista Business. Two machines are successfully joined domain. However, it was no printer deployed through GPO.

Any idea?

Here you go:

Option Explicit
Dim objNetwork, Printer1, Printer2, Printer3, Printer4

Printer1 = "\\server01\PRN001"
Printer2 = "\\server01\PRN002"
Printer3 = "\\server01\PRN004"
Printer4 = "\\server01\PRN005"

Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")

objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection Printer1
objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection Printer2
objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection Printer3
objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection Printer4
WScript.Quit

I did a Google search for "Vista WScript.Network" and found the following page http://www.developersdex.com/asp/message.asp?p=593&r=5431945&page=2
So it would appear then this will happen if the user logging in has Administrator Privileges . The problem being that the script runs elevated and the user's desktop with printer connections runs non-elevated so the script fails to work.
If that is your problem you can use a script on that page to workaround this or remove the Administrator Privileges from the account.
