Your code isn't waiting for the window to appear before trying to click the control. This should work better:

Run('RunDll32.exe SHELL32.DLL,SHHelpShortcuts_RunDLL AddPrinter2')
WinWait('Add Printer Wizard', 'Finish')
ControlClick('Add Printer Wizard', 'Finish', 12325)

I removed the extra parameters to ControlClick() in my example since they default to those values anyway.
