Recommended Posts


Need help for converting this working VBS script to Autoit

VBS SCript to Install Local Printer(lpt1)

Set WshShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

WshShell.Run "Regsvr32 /s z:\zenapps\printer\Prnadmin.dll",1,TRUE

dim oPrinter

set oMaster = createObject("PrintMaster.PrintMaster.1")

set oPrinter = CreateObject("Printer.Printer.1")

oPrinter.PrinterName = "HP LaserJet 5000 Series PCL" ' name of the printer as it appears in the Printers folder

oPrinter.DriverName = "HP LaserJet 5000 Series PCL6" ' name that is referenced in ntprint.inf

oPrinter.PortName = "lpt1:" ' Specify a port name. Can also point to LPT or COM port.

oMaster.PrinterAdd oPrinter

If Err <> 0 then

msgbox "There was an error creating the printer."

End if

This was the first result of a google search for "PrintUIEntry".


It is all right there. Look at that, try it in the Run window. If it works, use the Run() function in autoit. If you need help after trying that, let us know.
