Add Network Printer from CMD printui.dll

I have a network printer shared under \\myserver\myprinter$

I want to add this printer to a local computer using printui.dll

I am using:

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ga /n\\myserver\myprinter$

All the path are correct: I can get printer properties using

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /p /n\\myserver\myprinter$

But when I try /ga nothing happens.

I believe that you should use the /in parameter instead of /ga (if you want to add a normal network printer connection
like this
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n\\myserver\myprinter
