Can anyone help me with a app that will remove existing printers and add new ones using visual studio 2005/2008. I want to just have an application that can be run on each of the laptops in our office whenever we change printers. I want to add IP printer ports and specify the printers and drivers.

    I know this is not, but you can use the following in a users' login script to manage IP printers:
    rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /y /in /n \\server\sharename

    See here for a list of options:

    Create the printer on your server using the HOST name or IP address and then share it.

    When printers change - all you have to update is the login script to point to the new shared printer.
