Map printer within XenApp via script

Hi,

I have a XenApp 6 server to which I need to add shares & printers.
Shares is no problem via vb-script, however, the printers are not appearing.

I use
MapPrinter "\\ipofserver\printername

Please advise how to troubleshoot/correct.

Dirk KotteSECommented:
you can use "rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry ..." (rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /?) from commandline to add or remove printers at device or user-level.

Also searching,mapping,removing printers within vbs are possible.

try this:

Option Explicit
Dim netPrinter, UNCpath
UNCpath = "\\YourServer\PrinterName"
Set netPrinter = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
netPrinter.AddWindowsPrinterConnection UNCpath
 WScript.Echo "Your printer is mapped from : " & UNCpath
 WScript.Quit

or try to use MapPrinter with a variable...
strUNC = "\\PrintSRV\printer01"
MapPrinter strUNC
