Recommended Posts


Ok guys this is something i put together to install printers on a network using psexec for if you dont have a print server.

"Script to setup printers by remote by net admins using psexec
$username = InputBox( "Username", "Your username", "", "*")
$password = inputbox( "Password", "Your Password", "", "*")
$computername = inputbox ("Computer Name", "The name of the computer you want to install the printer to", "", "*")
$psexec = "\\ppxppghbo2\d$\isstech\luken\psexec.exe"
"location of your psexec on the network for users to copy"
$printer = ' rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /if /b "HP CP4700DTN" /f "\\ppxppghbo2\d$\isstech\luken\hp4700\hpc4700c.inf" /r "IP_10.30.112.60" /m "HP Color LaserJet 4700 PCL 6"'
"this is the run dll to install the printer. in this you need to modify after /f where the inf file for your printer driver is. /r is the ip for the printer /m is the exact driver name and if you "
"install it manually on the machine it will be listed on the advanced page under driver"
FileCopy( $psexec, @SystemDir, 1)
ShellExecute("c:\windows\system32\psexec.exe","-d \\"&$computername&" "&"-u domain\"&$username&" "&"-p "&$password&" cscript c:\windows\system32\prnport.vbs -a -r IP_10.30.124.31 -h -o raw -n 9100","","open",@sw_hide)
"this line set's up the ip address on the local machine you need to change domain name to match yours, you also need to change the ip after the -r and -h to what the static ip is on the printer"
ShellExecute("c:\windows\system32\psexec.exe","-d \\"&$computername&" "&"-u domain\"&$username&" "&"-p "&$password&$printer,"","open",@sw_hide)
"this line executes $printer all you need to change is the domain name"
