PrintUIEntry User Guide Not Reference

tucktech used Ask the Experts™
I would like to use the PrintUIEntry to install and remove printes from my network.  I reviewed the windows documentation but it appears to me as more of a reference and the runndll is not internatctive.  It does not provide error messages , etc.

I am not sure which flags have to be used together or what can be done alone. So I am looking for a helpful user guide.

Also, I want to configure all my machines to go from the desktop directly to the printer versus using a print server?  Any advice on this and what disadvantage this would be to do direct.

We use a printer server to keep job taking forever to process on the computer and if workstation lock up the print job will still process.
when we started doing this it lower our network traffic.
