add a network printer

Recommended Posts

johond

Hi, I have to write a autoit script to install a network printer.

When I add a printer by "printers panel" I have to choice "local printer" and then "create new port" and "SmartDeviceMonitor" and not "standard tcp/ip port".

So, the way seems is automate the default path "start"=>"printer & fax"=>"local printer" etc etc..

Anyone could give me some hints to install this printer in a fastest way ? (command line.. shortcuts etc)

bye

Hi,

You may try the freeware utility AdprintX ( http://www.winsite.com/bin/Info?9000000036378 )

good luck

that's a nice utility but I don't know how to install a SmartDeviceMonitor port

C:\>adprintx /l

PRINTER NAME: LANIER LP235c PCL 5c

SERVER NAME: n/a

DRIVER NAME: LANIER LP235c PCL 5c

DRIVER PATH: n/a

DATA TYPE: EMF

PORT NAME: 192.168.1.208@

how can i make the port ?

-------------

Why if I start my script with

send("#")

the start menu program does'nt popup ?

bye
