Need help updating new print driver on all print queues on Windows 2003 server

Hi All,

I am trying to udpate our production print queues installed on Windows 2003 server with new HP Universal print driver 5.1. I installed the driver on the server and trying to update all the print queues on this server through a batch files using "rundll32 printui.dll printuientry" command.

I am using the below command and it installs the UPD 5.1 on Testprinter but the model doesn't change. However, when I look at printer properties and about tab the driver is updated.

RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /ia /n "Testprinter" /m "HP Universal Printing PS (v5.1)" /f C:\xxxxx\hpcu104d.inf

I am not sure where the problem is but if anyone can provide some information or clue it would be of great help.

Thanks.

Try using this to replace your old driver.

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /Xs /n\\SERVER\PRINTERSHARENAME DriverName "Lexmark"

/Xs (set printer settings)
/n (printer name)
"Lexmark" (replace this with the HP UPD driver name something like "HP Universal Print Driver PCL 6")

Thanks for the solution yelbaglf. I am testing this right now to make sure that none of the other settings for each printer are changed.
