Enable Advanced Printing Features

When I run that scripts it pops (check attachment)..All I want is to enable or disable the feature on a chosen printer on teh printer server.

'To Enable Advanced Printing Features
'RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /Xs /n "printer name" attributes -RawOnly

'To Disable Advanced Printing Features
'UNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /Xs /n "printer name" attributes +RawOnly


Const ForReading = 1
dim printer
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\printers.txt", ForReading)
Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Do while not objFile.AtEndOfStream
    Printer = objFile.ReadLine
    Printer = "\\???\U150C1-Costar"
    Wscript.echo printer
    strCmd = "rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /xs /n " &  printer & " attributes +RawOnly"
    objShell.Run StrCmd
Loop
objFile.Close

Hi, I think the only problem was that you need a capital X following by a lower case s but I have also put quotes around the printer name, just in case.

    strCmd = "rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /Xs /n """ &  printer & """ attributes +RawOnly

Regards,

Rob.

I've got an Unterminated string constant on Line 16

'To Enable Advanced Printing Features
'RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /Xs /n "printer name" attributes -RawOnly

'To Disable Advanced Printing Features
'RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /Xs /n "printer name" attributes +RawOnly


Const ForReading = 1
dim printer
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\documents and settings\cis0794\desktop\printers.dat", ForReading)
Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Do while not objFile.AtEndOfStream
    Printer = "Lexmark T654 PS3"
'   Printer = objFile.ReadLine
    strCmd = "rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /Xs /n """ &  printer & """ attributes +RawOnly
