Disable "printer messages in system tray via command line?

Recommended Posts

I am working on an automated printer installation program and I would like to disable the "Show Informational Notifications" settings on the Print Server Properties. Does anyone know how to do that via command line? I know how to do it using the GUI, but I cannot even figure out how I could automate that (command line is much more preferable).

I found the answer elsewhere. No command line interface, but it can be done through the registry. Below are the entries for both local and remote. To turn it back on, just set it to 1:

RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Settings","EnableBalloonNotificationsRemote","REG_DWORD",0)
RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Settings","EnableBalloonNotificationsLocal","REG_DWORD",0)
