What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Something like this should work.  ( compiled from http://www.petri.co.il/forums/showthread.php?t=6352, and http://www.petri.co.il/forums/showthread.php?t=6486)

Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

WshNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection "\\PrintServer\OldPrinterName"

WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\PrintServer\NewPrinterName"

WshNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter "\\PrintServer\NewPrinterName"

Open in new window

You can use RUNDLL32 to add and delete printers, as well as many other things. See:
