PowerShell Script Help for Getting Printer Information From Registry

We have users who have a local Epson printer. The issue we are having is dumping the subkeys HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\DevModePerUser into an array and extracting the Epson key.

Step 1

Identify if there is a printer SubKey that starts with Epson under [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\DevModePerUser]

Step 2

If it exists copy the key name and write it to the key data below and enable TillParallelReceipt


"TillParallelPrinter"="Epson TMV118V-Reception"

Any help would be greatly appreciated, so far everything tried has failed.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I hope I understood you correctly:
$RegKeySource = "HKCU:\Printers\DevModePerUser"
$RegKeyTarget = "HKCU:\Software\TCDL\Login"
$PrinterLike = "Epson*"
$PrinterName = Get-Item -Path $RegKeySource |  Select-Object -ExpandProperty Property | ? {$_ -like $PrinterLike}
If ($PrinterName) {
	Set-ItemProperty -Path $RegKeyTarget -Name "TillParallelReceipt" -Type DWord -Value 1
	Set-ItemProperty -Path $RegKeyTarget -Name "TillParallelPrinter" -Type String -Value $PrinterName
} Else {
	Throw "No printer matching '$($PrinterLike)' found!"
