Here is a copy of what I understand to be needed to run this install. I first need to set the IP path, then Install the Drivers, then Install the Printer from the Drivers. I have looked at http://www.robvanderwoude.com/2kprintcontrol.php and found myself lost. I am not one who knows about scripting, but am learning. Right now though I need to get this working.


md c:\drivers\ricoh
xcopy "\\server\RICOH Aficio SP 5210SF\z61821Lf\disk1" c:\drivers\ricoh /I /y /D
RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /Xs /n "RICOH Aficio SP 5210SF" PortName "192.168.1.15"
RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /ia  /m "RICOH Aficio SP 5210SF" /h "Intel" /f C:\DRIVERS\Ricoh\OEMSETUP.INF
RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /if /b "RICOH Aficio SP 5210SF" /f C:\DRIVERS\Ricoh\OEMSETUP.INF /r "192.168.1.15" /m "RICOH Aficio SP 5210SF"

Have you actually created the TCP/IP port for the printer? If not, you can use PRNPORT.VBS to do that. If you're adding a local printer, you can use a command like:

cscript prnport.vbs -a -r PortName -h IPAddress

See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb490975.aspx for more details.

I have created the cscript and the printer port does show up, but still does not install.

new modified batch file:

Cscript "C:\Windows\System32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US\Prnport.vbs" -a -r 192.168.1.15 -h 192.168.1.15
Cscript "C:\Windows\System32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US\Prndrvr.vbs" -a -m "RICOH Aficio SP 5210SF" -i C:\DRIVERS\Ricoh\OEMSETUP.INF -h C:\DRIVERS\Ricoh
Cscript "C:\Windows\System32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US\Prnmngr.vbs" -a -p "Accounting Ricoh" -m "RICOH Aficio SP 5210SF" -r 192.168.1.15
