Aren't you missing the WMI query?
The below is the full version of what you have posted. Bear in mind that this will purge and delete EVERY printer found on the local machine.

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colInstalledPrinters =  objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Printer")
 
For Each objPrinter in colInstalledPrinters
    objPrinter.CancelAllJobs()
	objPrinter.Delete_
Next

Unfortunately that doesn't really show us much. Could you post the WMI query you have used, and the error message you are getting, and on what line this is occurring?
