How to rewrite these rundll32 commands to dllcall?

Recommended Posts

I use these 2 commands when installing and uninstalling printers and would like to use them in dllcall, but dont know how to write them in dllcall. Hope someone who knows how can it be done can help me, thanks.

RunWait('rundll32.exe' & ' printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /q /dl /n "' & $PrintersList[$i][1] & '"')
Run('rundll32.exe' & ' printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /y /z /Y /if /b "' & $PrinterModelName & '" /f "' & $DriverPath & '" /r "USB001" /m "' & $PrinterModelName & '"')

If it works, what is the issue?

An example of a dll call to turn off the screen.

Const $SYSCommand = 274
Const $SC_MonitorPower = 61808
Local $HWND = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Progman]")
DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $HWND, "int", $SYSCommand, "int", $SC_MonitorPower, "int", 2)

A good start point is to read the help page of AddPrinter from MSDN

The easiest way is to use WMI (like I did with the Printer Management UDF)

You probably can convert this vb code to AutoIt https://binaryworld.net/main/CodeDetail.aspx?CodeId=3646 I can't help you right now cuz I got a finger broken :S

As jguinch says WMI It's a great Alternative too
