HP 2035 Local USB install script

I'm trying to create a script to automatically install an HP2035 to on a user PC that has the printer plugged into the USB port.

So far, this is what I've come up with, but it's not working as intended.
 It looks like it copies the drivers from the network drive to the user PC, but it never creates the printer in the Printers and Faxes window.

Here's a link to the INF file I'm using: http://driveragent.com/0/archive/37877/1-0-9?q=hp2030.inf+%2Fmodel
strComputer = "."
Set oShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.shell")
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _ 
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2") 
objWMIService.Security_.Privileges.AddAsString "SeLoadDriverPrivilege", True 
 
Set objDriver = objWMIService.Get("Win32_PrinterDriver") 
 
objDriver.Name = "HP LaserJet P2035" 
objDriver.SupportedPlatform = "Windows NT x86" 
objDriver.Version = "3" 
objDriver.DriverPath = "I:\Scripts\P2035\" 
objDriver.Infname = "I:\Scripts\P2035\HP2030.INF"
intResult = objDriver.AddPrinterDriver(objDriver)

oshell.run "RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /if /b ""HP LaserJet P2035"" /f I:\Scripts\P2035\HP2030.INF /r ""usb001:"" /m ""HP LaserJet P2035""" ,,true

msgbox ("Printer installation complete.")

Have you tried using something like this:
strPrinterName = "HP LaserJet P2035"
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2") 
objWMIService.Security_.Privileges.AddAsString "SeLoadDriverPrivilege", True 
 
Set objDriver = objWMIService.Get("Win32_PrinterDriver") 
 
objDriver.Name = strPrinterName 
objDriver.SupportedPlatform = "Windows NT x86" 
objDriver.Version = "3" 
objDriver.DriverPath = "I:\Scripts\P2035\" 
objDriver.Infname = "I:\Scripts\P2035\HP2030.INF"
intResult = objDriver.AddPrinterDriver(objDriver)

objPrinter = objWMIService.Get("Win32_Printer").SpawnInstance_
objPrinter.Name = strPrinterName
objPrinter.DriverName = strPrinterName
objPrinter.PortName = "usb001"
objPrinter.DeviceID = strPrinterName
objPrinter.Network = False
objPrinter.Shared = False
objPrinter.Put_()

I made two small additions to the script, but yes it worked like a charm.  

I added the strComputer = "." at the top, and I added the "Set" at the beginning of objPrinter = objWMIService.Get("Win32_Printer").SpawnInstance_


Below is the final code, thanks for the help.
strComputer = "."
strPrinterName = "HP LaserJet P2035"
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2") 
objWMIService.Security_.Privileges.AddAsString "SeLoadDriverPrivilege", True 
 
Set objDriver = objWMIService.Get("Win32_PrinterDriver") 
 
objDriver.Name = strPrinterName 
objDriver.SupportedPlatform = "Windows NT x86" 
objDriver.Version = "3" 
objDriver.DriverPath = "I:\Scripts\P2035\" 
objDriver.Infname = "I:\Scripts\P2035\HP2030.INF"
intResult = objDriver.AddPrinterDriver(objDriver)

Set objPrinter = objWMIService.Get("Win32_Printer").SpawnInstance_
objPrinter.Name = strPrinterName
objPrinter.DriverName = strPrinterName
objPrinter.PortName = "usb001"
objPrinter.DeviceID = strPrinterName
objPrinter.Network = False
objPrinter.Shared = False
objPrinter.Put_() 

msgbox ("Printer installation complete.")

Set colInstalledPrinters =  objWMIService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from Win32_Printer where Default = 'True'")


	For Each objPrinter in colInstalledPrinters
	Wscript.Echo "Your current default printer is: " & objPrinter.Name
	Next 

intAnswer = Msgbox("Do you want to make the HP Laserjet P2035 your default printer?"  , vbYesNo, "Make default Printer?")


	If intAnswer = vbYes Then

		strComputer = "."

		Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
		& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")


		Set colInstalledPrinters =  objWMIService.ExecQuery _
		("Select * from Win32_Printer Where Name = 'HP LaserJet P2035'")

		For Each objPrinter in colInstalledPrinters
		objPrinter.SetDefaultPrinter()
		Next 

	End If
