Hello.
I have Server 2008 Server with printer role installed. I can configure the printer connections for Servers and Vista. But I have a lot of Windows XP computers, so I need to set the printers for them, I also need to remove the exist printer connections.

I tried so: RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /gd /c\\machine /n\\machine\printer
It does not work.

Please help.

Take a look at the code listed below...substitute your printer server name and share accordingly.


'Add a Printer
 
Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
 
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\PrintServer1\Xerox300"
WshNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter "\\PrintServer1\Xerox300"
 
' Delete a Printer Connection
 
Set objNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
objNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection "\\PrintServer\xerox3006"

Open in new window

Yes, it works. I mark this question as answered after you say to me does it work with Vista and Server 2008?

Yes, these work with one exception. They will not work if you have a desktop (Vista or XP) running 64-bit and you have not loaded the 64-bit drivers onto the print server.
