Okay, I guess I'm among the millions worldwide who has been dragged away from XP kicking and screaming .
I don't do much printing with the printer in my office. Many times I go for weeks without printing something and the inkjets get clogged/dried up.
With XP I had a simple two-line batch file that printed a test page on my printer. I had it run on Mondays and Thursdays via the Task Scheduler.
cscript prnqctl.vbs -e -p "EPSON Stylus C120 Series"
I have modified the batch file to the new path for prnqctl.vbs and the new printer name as follows:
cscript C:\Windows\System32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US\prnqctl.vbs -e -p "HP Officejet Pro 8100 (Kerry's office)"
I have also tried the SysWOW64 path to prnqctl.vbs file.
Both versions of the program fail with "Unable to get printer instance. Error 0x8004103A Invalid object path"
I don't know where to go from here.
