Experts,

I need a VB script that will do a Check to see if the OS is any version Windows XP. If so, then continue with the printer install portion of the script. If NOT, then close.

Here is my printer portion:

Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
On error resume next
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Commercial Invoice Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Commercial Laser Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Office BoxTag Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Office Invoice Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Office Laser Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Back Office Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\OfficeTag"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Retail Front Invoice Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Scheduling Color Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Scheduling Invoice Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Scheduling Laser Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Tempe Laser Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Warehouse Office Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Warehouse Reciever Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Office Management Laser Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Front Desk Laser Printer"
WshNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter "\\az1svr1\Front Desk Laser Printer"

Can't test this here, but this should work:

Set oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
If Instr(oShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%OS%"), "XP") > 0 Then
   Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
   On error resume next
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Commercial Invoice Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Commercial Laser Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Office BoxTag Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Office Invoice Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Office Laser Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Back Office Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\OfficeTag"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Retail Front Invoice Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Scheduling Color Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Scheduling Invoice Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Scheduling Laser Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Tempe Laser Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Warehouse Office Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Warehouse Reciever Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Office Management Laser Printer"
   WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\az1svr1\Front Desk Laser Printer"
   WshNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter "\\az1svr1\Front Desk Laser Printer" 
End If

MartinLiss, I am not very Vb savy, so it doesn't help me. I actually need someone to write it for me. :)

billprew, it failed agaisnt the machine, I thing the WMI lookup isn't correct as it goes to zero.

RobSampson, I am trying to incorporate some of your previous solutions, I don't think I have it down yet.

OK,

I got it to work as long as the machine is XP, but ideally how can i get it to run a different part of the script of the wmi detects it is windows 7?

here is what I have so far:

strComputer = "."
 
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select Caption From Win32_OperatingSystem")
 
For Each objItem in colItems
     strOS = objItem.Caption
Next
 
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
If InStr(strOS, "XP") > 0 Then

Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
On error resume next
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\AZPRINT\Tempe Office Laser"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\AZPRINT\TempeTag"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\AZPRINT\Tempe Fax Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\AZPRINT\Tempe Color Printer"
WshNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter "\\AZPRINT\Tempe Fax Printer"

End If

You can add other ElseIf statements per OS you need.  I have left a space for Windows 7 code below.

Regards,

Rob.

strComputer = "."
 
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select Caption From Win32_OperatingSystem")
 
For Each objItem in colItems
     strOS = objItem.Caption
Next
 
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
On error resume next
If InStr(strOS, "XP") > 0 Then

Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\AZPRINT\Tempe Office Laser"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\AZPRINT\TempeTag"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\AZPRINT\Tempe Fax Printer"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\AZPRINT\Tempe Color Printer"
WshNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter "\\AZPRINT\Tempe Fax Printer" 

ElseIf InStr(strOS, "7") > 0 Then
   ' put the Windows 7 code here

End If
