Install Printer With Runas

Recommended Posts



I've got a little Problem. B)

I am at a custumer and he uses xp-clients with restricted rights.

Now a standard user should be install a printer without knowing the admin-pw.

I've tried to run the wizard with runas but it seems, that another prozess will be used to install the drivers. :whistle:

I've tried to start following with runas:


; Set the RunAs parameters to use local adminstrator account

RunAsSet("administrator", @Computername, "pass")

; Run rundll as admin

RunWait("rundll32 shell32.dll,SHHelpShortcuts_RunDLL AddPrinter")

; Reset RunAs



Does anyone know which second prozess will be started and how i can fix that problem?

Thx for every solution! :angry:
