Seeking Printer Install Solution

16 posts in this topic

Hello All,

I've been searching the forums for a printing solution that will meet my needs... but, most of the scripts I have been able to find are related to a 'Print Server' which is NOT possible here....

My situation is this.... I support 30+ PC's, we use IP printing (about 9 printers total)...

I am looking to create, or modify an existing script, that will allow me to automate the process of installing these printers to the machines.

Currently I am just doing the old manual 'Start > Printers and Faxex > ....' manually for each printer that needs to be installed.

Does anyone have anything 'fancy' out there that I could use? OR any good ideas for this situation?

Thanks!

Yeah I have something; I'll take your 30 PCs and raise you 3600. This didn't eliminate having to visit each PC but it made life a heck of a lot easier not to mention less prone to errors. What I did was package the drivers and the AutoIT script together using powerarchiver. Turned it into a self-executing archive and had it run the FastPrinterInstaller.exe file after it was done extracting. This helped make a tidy little package we put on our flash drives.

I comment the hell out of my code, you should be able to figure out how to modify it for your environment.

Good luck, man!

I looked at that, it works only in WindowsXP. I have a mixed Windows 2000/Windows XP environment as do many businesses and organizations.

I didn't say it'd be the end all be all solution to the problem... Although a quick OS check would allow you to use a quick and easy solution for XP and then a more complicated one for 2000 since a simple one doesn't exist... *shrug*

BTW, why don't you use ControlSetText here instead of Send?

WinWaitActive( "Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard", "Enter the Printer Name or IP address")
    ControlClick ( "Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard", "", 1000)
    Send ($PrinterIP); enter the printer's IP address
    Send ("{TAB}"); switch to port name field
    Send ("{HOME}{DEL 20}"); Backspace over the port name
    Send ($PrinterFriendlyNameAndIP); Enter the friendly port name
    ControlClick ("Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard", "", 12324); Click Next>

Hey sweet i just made a program that does exactly this ;)

1. Basically enter in the IP printer stuff into the printer part of the gui

2. add computers to list ex: compname not \\compname

3. sit back and relax

Here is the program: Printer Borger

Any questions just ask!

Because I'm a newbie at this stuff and didn't know I could do that :"> I think I'm doing pretty good for having no formal training and have only picked up this autoit stuff in the past couple weeks.

This is great stuff guys... thanks to all!

Keep it coming!

WiSp, your utility is almost *exactly* what I was looking for... I'm not very good at coding 'yet', but I'm trying to go through and see how I may be able to customize this program for our exact needs... thank you for sharing this code!

Do you have the source code? I'd like to take a look at the networking stuff you used.

Hey WiSp,

I know your question was directed to/at DDRBoxman, but I just wanted to tell you that I am working on modifying your printer solution ...

I am wanting to get rid of the need to memorize printer IP address's... so, for my department... I want to take your 'Printer Model' selection box and modify it a bit so that the box gives us 'friendly' names and the printer's IP address is automatically determined.

For example... instead of choosing 'Cannon 5' and typing in the IP address....

I want to modify my version of your app so that you have the option to click on a more detailed description 'Cannon 5 - 2nd Floor MailRoom' , and when make this choice... the IP address is 'hard coded' in.

I only have about 12 printers that I support... a lot of redundant models... so that this shouldn't be that hard to do, right? I'm just saying.. this may not scale all that well to a larger environment...

Do you have any idea on a better way to handle this??

I am just trying to create a way so that there is no need to memorize any IP's, any admin can run the tool and easily select the correct printer in our dept, get the correct driver and IP address in a snap....

Thank you again for sharing.. this code has helped me learn a LOT.

Hmm, well, I suppose you could use the part in the GUI section that chooses the driver path (Canon or Richo) and also assign IP addresses from there. You can use koda to make our own GUI or just comment out the lines for the IP address block from my code until you become more comfortable with making your own.

In any case, you'd need another variable called $PrinterChoice which would write the selected item when you pushed the "Install Printer" button. Then your IF/ELSE statement (example below) would do the heavy lifting. I think the "right" thing to use would be a "switch/case" statement but I'm not very comfortable (read newbie-ish) with those. If anyone else here with more programming experience can explain how to write a case statement that is easy to understand for programming newbies, please do, I'll be checking back.

If StringInStr($PrinterChoice, "Canon 5000 - 2nd floor") Then
    $PrinterModel = "Canon iR5000 PCL6" ; Driver name found in the .ini file
    $PrinterDriver = $CanonDriver
    $IPAddress = 12.34.56.78
ElseIf StringInStr($PrinterChoice, "Canon 2000 - 9th floor") Then
    $PrinterModel = "Canon iR2000/3000 PCL6" ; Driver name found in the .ini file
    $PrinterDriver = $CanonDriver
    $IPAddress = 87.23.56.79
ElseIf StringInStr($PrinterChoice, "Canon 2300 - 1st floor") Then
... more stuff ...
EndIf
