@Echo Off
SetLocal EnableDelayedExpansion

IF NOT EXIST C:\Computers.txt Goto ShowErr
FOR %%R IN (C:\Computers.txt) Do IF %%~zR EQU 0 Goto ShowErr
IF EXIST C:\PrintersReport.txt DEL /F /Q C:\PrintersReport.txt

FOR /F "delims=*" %%c IN ('Type C:\Computers.txt') Do (
      Echo Processing: %%c
      Echo ------------------------------------->>C:\PrintersReport.txt
      Echo Printers installed on %%c: >>C:\PrintersReport.txt
      Echo ------------------------------------->>C:\PrintersReport.txt
      SET Qry=WMIC /Node:"%%c" Printer WHERE "Default=True" GET NAME /Value ^| FIND /I "Name="
      FOR /F "Delims== Tokens=2" %%p IN ('!Qry!') Do (SET DPrinter=%%p)
      SET Qry=WMIC /Node:"%%c" Printer GET NAME /Value ^| FIND /I "Name="
      FOR /F "Delims== Tokens=2" %%p IN ('!Qry!') Do (
            IF "!DPrinter!"=="%%p" (
                  Echo %%p ^(Default^)>>C:\PrintersReport.txt) ELSE (
                  Echo %%p >>C:\PrintersReport.txt)
      )
