at work i have a user that is still on winXP. the policies are set so that she can't install a local printer. I tried setting up a network printer, but she doesn't have access to the print server. so I was going to print directly to the printer using the IP address. So I was going to use the rundll32.exe printui.dll command to setup the printer, so far I have

rundll32.exe printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /n "D01WE401M1" /l c:\temp\wc5845\WC58XX_5.351.8.0_PS_32_Driver.inf\x2DLUMP.inf

but it keeps giving an error

"the arguments are invalid"

any ideas what I'm missing.

Could you log in as admin, install the printer, but point it to an IP port, test that it works, and then ensure that it's shared?

All you need to do is install a new printer select network printer enter the ip address let it find the device choose the driver you want to use give it a name could be the same name as on server, no need to share it, I am mobile now but of you need screen shots let me know
