Remove printers and set up new ones

Can anyone help me with a vb.net 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.
Thanks

I know this is not vb.net, 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.
