Script to remove certain printers

Posted on 2014-12-02

Dear Experts,

I have tried using scripts so that a user can run to automatically remove certain printers.

Our current installed printers are IP printers and they all start with the same 3 letter code but the 4th character changes.

Is there a script that can be executed in order to remove a printer or printers?

Thank you in advance

here you go

Just because this site calls it a logon script does not mean it can't be used in general it certainly can be run manually etc...

Still unable to run it

From this code: I only want to remove printers from a local machine.

I have removed the Add printer part and added my server name, however receive a character error.

My server name is mia-fs2     and the printer is mia-61, could you tell me where i should enter this info correctly so the script can execute?

 set objNetwork = CreateObject(“WScript.Network”)
objNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection “\\Your_print_server\printer_name_being_removed”
objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection “\\Your_print_server\printer_name_being_added”
