Need VB or HTA to create a printer then delete it

I have a custom scenario where a user needs to connect to an IPP printer (http://99.99.99.99:631), then the user will print to the printer, then will need to disconnect or delete the printer.  So I need either a VB script or an HTA that the user can execute that will create the printer, then provide a desktop button that the user can click to disconnect or delete the printer after the user is done printing to it.

To remove the same printer use the following code:


On Error Resume Next
Dim wshNet     : Set wshNet = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Dim strPrinter : strPrinter = "http://99.99.99.99:631"

wshNet.RemovePrinterConnection strPrinter, True, True
On Error GoTo 0
