Printer Data

2 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where in the Registry I can find the data for installed and networked printers? I have a script that will read the registry for the networked printers but it only gives me the Server and Printer Name. I am looking to find the Printer Make and Model. If you check the Printer properties it will show so that tells me it has to be stored somewhere, I just need to know where so I can direct the script to it if possible. Also bare with me as I am new to this scripting stuff. I appreciate any wisdom that anyone can share with me. Thank you for your time.
