Add network Printer and set as default. ?

Recommended Posts



Ultimately, I need my script to add a shared network printer (\\servername\printersharename) to a user's machine and set it to be the default printer regardless of what other printers are on the machine, and regardless of whether there is a currently selected default printer.

RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c start \\ehprnt\admit-4')
RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c start \\ehprnt\admit-6')

I am using these lines for starters and it works fine, though if possible I would like to suppress the black box that says:

"CMD.EXE was started with the above path as the current directory. UNC paths are not supported. Defaulting to Windows directory.

Is there a way to start this command in the @WindowsDir folder and not the one where the script resides?

Also, as mentioned above, is there a way to make the printer the default printer?
