Vistra Printer Setup Via Code

Hello,

We have a variety of IP based printers that we need to be able to setup automatically, ideally via a program written in C# or VB.NET.

For example, to manually setup one of our printers:
-Add Printer Wizard
-Create New IP Printing Port
-Select Driver

We need to be able to do this with a program, ideally one that can work in either XP or Vista.  I've found several articles on possible implementations using vbs, but these functions do not seem to work in Vista.  

Any resources or suggestions?  In the worst case, we could write seperate apps for Vista and XP.

Thanks

It is more easily done via group policies,

But you can do it with a logon script

Unfortunately, Vista UAC will stop that cold, so you need to disable it for drivers in GP.
