Currently i am trying to resolve an issue with my printer setup on a windows 2003 network. The issue is that the printer has already been creatied, shared and added to all of the users profiles. However, a local setting on the machiens keeps changing the default printer back to the one which comes first alphabetically - which i dont want to happen.
I have done a lot of research into the topic, and it seems that the best solution is to create a vbs script which assigns the printer as default. I have the line of code which actually sets the printer to be default:
however, i am not a programmer and i am getting syntax errors when i add this line into a notepad and rename the file as a .vbs script and deploy it via gpo - as i expected.
Could somebody please advise me on the correct syntax for this file. Like i said, the printer has already been created and is in use - i just need to simply set the printer to be default.
