+ 0 Votes You should be able to accomplish this cmiller5400 5 years ago I had written a script eons ago to add printers. there is an option to specify where the driver(s) are located. + 0 Votes re: mapped or shared slatimer76 5 years ago I agree with you that the printer should install the drivers. I am using Windows Server 2008 standard (x64) and when i try to install the network printer, it tells me the drivers are not installed. I am not sure if it is an HP thing (using HP printers) or a windows 2008 thing, the drivers not being fully compatible. According to HP, the drivers are for 2008 as well. When i use the script, if i have not manually installed the drivers on the admin login, an error occurs. Thanks for the replys. + 0 Votes Mapped or shared? 1bn0 5 years ago 'Add printers AddPrinterConnection "\\PrnSrvr\Printer1" AddPrinterConnection "\\PrnSrvr\Printer2" If IsAMemberOf(objNetwork.UserDomain,objNetwork.UserName,"ColorPrinter") Then AddPrinterConnection "\\PrnSrvr\ClrLsr" 'Map printer Net Use LPT3 \\PrnSrvr\Printer1 If the printer is shared from a windows print server the server should have the drivers and install them correctly. The Net Use command is only necessary for programs (DOS apps generally) that do not recognise installed windows printers and will only print to a "hardware" device.
