Need vbscript  for Creating pdf printer port. This is what I have so far. Assistance or different script is much appreciated.


WshShell.Run "regsvr32 /s \\ServerName\FolderName\Prnadmin.dll",1,TRUE
 
'************** Create the port first *******************************
 
dim oPort,objShell,oMaster,oPrinter,uProfile
 
 
set oPort = CreateObject("Port.Port.1")
Set objShell=CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
uProfile=objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%USERPROFILE%")
 
set oMaster = CreateObject("PrintMaster.PrintMaster.1")
 
oPort.PortName = uProfile
 
oPort.PortType = 4
 
oMaster.PortAdd oPort
 
if Err <> 0 Then
 
msgbox "There was an error creating the port."
 
end If
 
'********************************************************************
 
'************** Create the printer second ***************************
'Change MyPrinter to the name of the printer that you are adding.
'Change PrinterDriver to the name of the printer driver that you are adding.
 
 
set oPrinter = CreateObject("Printer.Printer.1")
 
oPrinter.PrinterName = "USPTO PDF Publisher"		' name of the printer as it appears in the Printers folder
 
oPrinter.DriverName = "Adobe PDF Converter"		' name that is referenced in ntprint.inf
 
oPrinter.PortName = "uProfile"		' Specify a port name. Can also point to LPT or COM port.
 
oMaster.PrinterAdd oPrinter
If Err <> 0 Then
 
msgbox "There was an error creating the printer."
 
end If
 
 
msgbox "The script is finished."

Why do you need to create a printer port? I assume that you want to create PDF documents programatically. There is a better (and documented) way to do that. Are you familiar with the Distiller API reference document?

I need to create a seperate pdf printer object on pc's that already have adobe acrobat. My need for this is to setup a joboptions template different from adobe's standard for another type of pdf document creation.
