Login Script Help using AUTOIT

Recommended Posts


I am trying to rewrite my VB login script completly in AUTOIT.

I can map the drives using DriveMapAdd

I can launch exe's using RunWait

But how can i add printers? Like the below using VB script?

strPrinterHost = "prlxhbgma01n003"

strPrinterName = "PRLXHBGMA01N003"

strPrinterDriver = "HP LaserJet 4000 Series PCL"

Set objWMI = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\cimv2")

Set objNewPort = objWMI.Get("Win32_TCPIPPrinterPort").SpawnInstance_

objNewPort.Name = "IP_" & strPrinterHost

objNewPort.Protocol = 1

objNewPort.HostAddress = "prlxhbgma01n003"

objNewPort.PortNumber = "9100"

objNewPort.SNMPEnabled = False


' Add the printer

objShell.Run "%windir%\system32\cscript.exe %windir%\system32\prnmngr.vbs -a -p """ & strPrinterName & """ -m """ & strPrinterDriver & """ -r IP_" & strPrinterHost, 0 , True

local printer or network printer?


Based on his script, it looks to be a network printer. DriveMapAdd() would be ideal if it was a local printer, but unfortunately I am unsure of how to add a network printer via logon script. I use AutoIt for logon scripts too, but have not yet needed to add network printers with it.
